In a statement Garriga wrote: “The GIA is continuously growing and changing and I am very proud to have such a dedicated, reliable, hardworking and passionate team and we plan to make sure we can make the GIA an organisation that is transparent, democratic and most of all, truly represents the variety and richness of architecture and architects in our chapter.
“As a woman myself, I want to make sure that women have a bigger voice in our profession, that our work is recognised and celebrated to ensure we have true equality for future generations.”
Gracious in defeat Garriga’s sole challenger, Robin Webster, wrote: “I will support her to the best of my ability and look for a positive future for the GIA.”
