At the age of 16 Mary de Saulles decided she would become an architect in an industry predominantly made up of men. Through her passion and determination, she achieved this goal, becoming a member of the Royal Institute of British Artchitects and paving the way for Women in Architecture.
Mary’s training as an architect along with her inspiring life force has enabled her to pursue a vast variety of career paths. She was appointed as the Deputy officer in Charge within the Architects Department of the London County Council, she worked on the Festival of Britain, she was the Industrial Designer for British European Airways and set up her very own Practice in Shrewsbury.
Now at 95 years old, she reflects back on her achievements and shares some of her architectural career experiences and life-lessons.
