Jennifer O'Donnell

Jennifer is co-founder of O’DonnellBrown, a Glasgow based practice on a mission to bring about positive change in the communities they work with.

Under Jennifer’s leadership the studio has gained early and critical recognition, as the only UK finalist in 2019’s Architectural Review Emerging Architecture Awards, as a ‘stand-out practice’ in The Architect’s Journal 40 under 40, which recognises architecture’s brightest up-and-coming talent, and as a featured practice in The Architecture Foundation’s ‘New architects 4’, a major publication surveying the best British architectural practices established in the past ten years.

Jennifer has recently joined the Design Council’s network of experts and is looking forward to supporting the Design Council in their mission to make life better by design.

A graduate of the Mackintosh School of Architecture, Jennifer has maintained links with Glasgow’s architecture schools, both as visiting critic and design tutor. She is passionate about using these roles to help educate the next generation about the built environment and the social responsibility that comes with shaping it.
