Simone Ridyard MSAI

Simone is a Manchester based architect and Senior Lecturer in Interior Design at Manchester Metropolitan University. Her background is arts based and over recent years she has produced visuals for leading architectural practices.

As an architect, Simone has developed skills in communicating architectural ideas through drawings. This includes representing cities through precise pencil drawings overlaid with watercolour washes. She believes drawings and paintings are effective tools in communicating and evolving ideas with clients, particularly at conceptual stages of projects.
