Zoe Latham is an MPhil/ PhD candidate and Associate Lecturer in the Architecture Department at the University of Plymouth. Zoe’s emerging architectural praxis looks to the subjective landscape and ritualised connections to landscape in order to better understand and potentially create places that nurture connection and meaning to people. This academic focus progresses ideas of place and identity, outlined in a recently published, co-authored journal paper ‘Shenzhen’s urban villages: dialogic cultural landscapes and resilient rituals’.
Preceding her return to academia, Zoe most recently worked as an architectural designer in New York, concentrating on adaptive reuse, regeneration and conservation of architecture. Prior to working in the USA, Zoe worked in Shenzhen, China for two years; working on high-end interior design, conceptual architectural and landscape design.
