Juliet Aston speaks to WIA about being a leading figure at MICA

‘Business NOT as usual’ event, organised by NAWIC in collaboration with Women in Architecture, aims to inspire through the stories of women who have become role models in their fields. The panel of speakers included female leaders who have either set up their own successful companies or have climbed up the leadership ladder of established organisations.

Juliet Aston from MICA was invited to take part in the discussions around experiences between women who hold senior leadership roles within established Architecture Practices. Juliet has worked at MICA (formerly Rick Mather) for over 15 years and her project experience includes: the redevelopment of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in the USA; a new Auditorium at Corpus Christi College in Oxford; and leading the Ashmolean Museum’s Egypt Galleries & Randolph Gallery Restoration.

She is currently Project Architect for the restoration of Hay Castle in Wales as well as spearheading designs for the redevelopment of the Brewhouse Theatre & Arts Centre in Taunton, Somerset. Qualified in both architecture and in History of Art, Juliet has also undertaken specialist conservation training. Juliet has been instrumental in the practice’s partnership with the Women in Architecture campaign – contributing to the campaign’s steering group sessions and mentoring in the UK-wide programme.

NAWIC and WIA have been collaborating through RIBA's EDI programme throughout 2018 and aim to continue to do so in 2019 in order to overcome challenges and identify opportunities in an ever-changing construction industry, beyond Brexit.
