Jane Hall

Jane studied architecture at King’s College Cambridge and the Royal College of Art in London. She is a founding member of the architecture collective Assemble who won the Turner Prize in 2015. Jane is currently a PhD candidate where her thesis builds on the research she conducted as the inaugural recipient of the British Council’s Lina Bo Bardi Fellowship in 2013. Her study concerns the alternative practices of Bo Bardi in Brazil in comparison with the architects Alison and Peter Smithson in the UK, focusing on how postwar architecture was shaped by the Modern Art Movement on both sides of the Atlantic. Jane’s work on public space, occupation and collective action in Brazil has been published in Blueprint Magazine, The Architectural Review and most recently, Matzine.
