Anne Thorne Architects was founded in 1991. Prior to that she was part of Matrix Feminist Design Co-operative, one of the first architectural groups in Britain to take an overtly feminist stance in their way of working and designing, and in the projects they took on. Matrix designed, gave advice, published manuals for community groups, and developed participatory design methods. Anne continues to focus on women’s use of the environment and their participation in its creation both as users and as designers. She is a fellow of the royal Society of Arts and a member of Artworkers Guild.
