Designing Human Centric Cities - Interview with Architect Felicity Stewart
For a young Gen Y Architect, Felicity Stewart has big ideas. She envisages society moving towards human centric cities where the people (not cars) own the public space. Felicity co-founded Stewart Hollenstein - an innovative architecture practice - with her university colleague Matthias Hollenstein with the purpose of putting meaningful human experiences at the centre of the design process. Her practice Stewart Hollenstein is a reflection of her and Matthias's values - help the people live a quality life in their urbanised city by making public space be theirs to use.
In this episode of Money Intelligence for the Greater Good podcast, Felicity shares about winning the Green Square Library and Plaza competition, the challenges of starting out the business, the future of architecture, her money habits, the values that drive her success and what she is grateful for. Shortly after recording the episode, Felicity and her partner welcomed their son Harvey into this world. She is looking forward to taking up the next challenge in her life - balancing business and motherhood.
