In 2021 she co-curated ‘Emergence’, an exhibition celebrating decades of Byera Hadley architectural research projects with over thirty-five exhibitors. The exhibition continued to run during COVID with an online digital twin and online public program featuring 20 speakers, after an in-person opening that saw hundreds of people get together.
