Challenging The Commodification of Architecture

Beginning my interest in architecture, around the same time I became interested in learning to walk, I have spent a significant amount of time grappling with the concepts around architecture.

I have a diverse portfolio featuring a number of high profile, large-scale, mixed-use, urban regeneration projects with particular experience in the creative re-use of existing buildings.

Spending the last 10 years trying to marry poetic imagination and surgical precision I have used architecture to express my internal propulsion to challenge any vaguely pedestrian expectations of architecture.

But let's not mistake this for a mere poetic folly. I wish to inspire a clarion call against the soulless banality of the built environment. We must reconnect with the tactile, the sensory, the narrative – to embrace architecture that's as real as it is evocative.

Presenting to those within the sector for years, I want to take this opportunity to speak directly to building users, i.e. everyone else, to bridge the chasm between designer and user.
