David joined Hawkins\Brown having completed his Part I at the University of Nottingham and his Part II, Masters of Architecture, at The Bartlett, UCL, where he was awarded a distinction.
During his studies he developed a keen interest in exploring new construction materials and adaptive structural systems, embracing a combination of both digital computation and analogue fabrication methods to allow for various ideas to be physically realised, tested and improved. This research, as part of his thesis, served as a catalyst for creating a deployable housing system that can adapt to changing environmental demands.
Enjoying a hands-on approach to architecture and design, David has created models that have been exhibited at the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition and the London Festival of Architecture.
In his spare time, David enjoys cross-country cycling and rock climbing.
