The British Council
announced that Vicky Richardson has been appointed as Director Architecture, Design, Fashion, British Council.
Vicky will take up the post on the March 1, 2010, continuing the work of Catherine Ince and Alison Moloney who have been Acting Co-Directors of the team since Emily Campbells departure in October 2008.
Vicky joins from her post as Editor of 'Blueprint Magazine' and will play an important role in the ongoing development of the British Councils national and international work across the fields of architecture, design and fashion.
Vicky Richardson commented: Ive always admired the work of the British Council and its exciting to be joining an organisation with such a strong record in architecture, design and fashion. Fortunately Britain has become a magnet for overseas architects and designers, so the remit of promoting cultural exchange is even more interesting. Its been a great privilege to edit Blueprint, and I hope to be able to carry on discussing ideas with all the talented people Ive worked with over the years.
