David’s studies at the University of Lincoln and Sheffield School of Architecture culminated in him receiving a distinction (MArch), and the JK Page Prize in Environmental science. His thesis project explored to re-imagine the way people can utilise experiential knowledge as tools to advocate social justice in multi-cultural urban communities.
He explored these themes further through academic endeavours including teaching as a studio tutor and undertaking participatory place-making projects in the North of England.
David’s diverse experience, both in practice and academic spans residential, community, regeneration and public-realm design. With a particular interest in participatory place-making, his passion for socially and sustainably responsive design ensures he is driven in exploring holistic design solutions on a wide spectrum of scales.
In his spare time David uses his skills as an avid kayaker and mountain biker to get out and explore new places and different cultures.
