Frances Crow is a qualified architect who has worked in practice since 1998. Following her training at Liverpool John Moore’s University and the Bartlett, University College London, she worked for a number of national and international architects, both in London and Berlin. Between 2002–2007 she worked as a part-time senior lecturer at Plymouth University in the School of Architecture and the i-dat research group. She started her own design practice in 2007, which concentrates on ecological solutions for small-scale projects. Her approach to the process of design is to work at a multi-sensory, micro scale and this preoccupation is continued through liminal by concentrating on the often-overlooked sense of hearing.
