Maria is a Principal at Populous. Since joining the practice in 2013, she has proved her design leadership on several large-scale sports and entertainment buildings. In 2019 she was awarded RIBA Journal’s Rising Star.
Her crowning achievement has been the design and delivery of the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, for which she was the lead designer, responsible for maintaining the highest standards of design from concept through to completion; a five year journey. In addition to this, she was also Project Architect for the multi-use Tottenham Experience building as part of the wider stadium development.
