About your Mentor

Ed Dale-Harris of SAWA

ARB Architect, Edward Dale-Harris believes we must look beyond sustainability and move towards regeneration, we have to change our destructive behaviour and do much better to protect nature as citizens of the earth and stewards of the land.

Ed realises the importance of a mindfulness approach to regenerative design, using nature as our teacher, and valuing a collective and collaborative decision-making process for a grounded and successful project. He is on a mission to introduce others to socially, environmental and mindful architecture and to keep his learnings at a fair cost to enable all people from all walks of life and be truly inclusive. Ed qualified as an Architect in 2017 and has gained many awards for his design, commitment, vision, compassion, charity work, environm...
