How I Got Here: Amanda Levete

Amanda Levete is known for daring, ambitious and innovative architectural projects. Last year her practice AL_A completed the £54 million exhibition hall and porcelain tiled courtyard at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London – a project that involved drilling 50 metres into the ground and removing a 19th-century screen.

Speaking to Creative Entrepreneurs founder Carolyn Daily at the V&A this week, she discussed her “slow trajectory” to success, building an established practice and why we should take more risks.
