Eva Jiřičná is a Czech-born architect based in London since 1968. She completed her architectural education at The Technical University in Prague where she qualified as Engineer-Architect.

Eva first became well known for her work on shop interiors and residential projects, especially her designs of glass staircases. Today, she is particularly celebrated for her work in the Victoria & Albert Museum, Canada Water Bus Station, Leicester Library, The Orangery at Prague’s Castle and more. In partnership with a Czech colleague, she opened another practice called AI DESIGN in Prague in 1999.

She has been awarded a CBE and received 11 honorary doctorates.
