Amalie White BSc (Hons) MA RCA (ARB Part II)
Amalie is an Architectural Designer, specialising in stage design for live performance. She has been with STUFISH since 2013.
Before obtaining her Architecture MA (ARB Part II), at the Royal College of Art, Amalie was already designing for the stage during her time as an undergraduate at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL.
Amalie’s playful design approach is demonstrated in entertainment projects such as Monty Python Live (mostly) for the 02 Arena in 2014, AC/DC Rock or Bust Stadium Tour in 2015 and Catherine Tate Live in 2016. Amalie has been closely involved from initial concept development to overseeing the stage set assemble for rehearsal. This has given Amalie insightful knowledge of how a client’s desire is to be realised within the real practicalities of the entertainment industry. These projects have also provided her invaluable experience for designing at different scales as Monty Python was both for a live arena audience as well as for live television broadcast and DVD, whereas AC/DC’s tour was created for an outdoor stadium crowd, and more intimately, Catherine Tate was performing for various theatres across the UK.
Other notable projects Amalie has worked on include Robbie William’s Swing Both Ways Arena Tour 2014, Showstoppers for the Wynn Theatre in Vegas 2014 and The Man and his Music at the London Palladium in 2015.
Amalie’s fascination for history and theory in design has led her to publish in an academic journal in 2013, as well as achieve distinction in 2017, at the Royal College of Art, for her thesis on the ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Stadium Tour’, which looked at the history and future of the live music event.
