Other clients include Virgin Atlantic, the University of Westminster, Oxford University and Liverpool Waterfront. Her most recent projects include a scheme for ExCeL London (the second biggest venue for the 2012 Olympics) and producing design solutions for Porto Montenegro, a new town and marina to compete with Monte Carlo.
