Lizz Riley-Evans


Lizz joined John McAslan + Partners in 2007 as a model maker and now manages the practice’s model shop.

Lizz studied model making at the Kent Institute of Art and Design (KIAD) for three years and received a BTEC Higher National Diploma in Model Making. During the summer of her first year at KIAD, Lizz worked at Foster + Partners on work placement and was subsequently offered a full time job at the practice. Lizz continued her studies while working at Foster + Partners and was selected by Sir Norman Foster to go to Buckingham Palace to accept an award for Export from the Queen on his behalf.

In 2003, she assisted in the founding of Vista Models, making models for various architectural practices including David Chipperfield Architects, Foster + Partners, Zaha Hadid, HTA, HOK and MJP.

After three years at Vista Models she became a partner at the company, but later left to return to in-house work where she enjoys working more directly with architects.

Her work has frequently been exhibited in the Royal Academy’s annual summer exhibition.
