Jonathan joined Hawkins\Brown from the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL and the University of Nottingham. His projects; informed by current, future and imagined energy systems and ecologies, focused on the re-use of discarded infrastructures to create novel and interesting investigations into habitation of space.
Jon’s background is in making. He has extensive experience in production/manufacture and handmade craft; skills he acquired whilst working as an apprentice automotive model maker at Land Rover’s design headquarters in Warwickshire, producing world class models in a variety of media. He main interests lie in digital fabrication for which he was given the Leverhulme award in CNC machining whilst studying at UCL.
During his Masters Jon worked for architectural design research practice Smout/Allen, contributing to projects exhibited in the UK, America and at the 2012 Venice Biennale.
Jon still maintains involvement in architectural education; teaching at the University of Nottingham, and is currently the Design Realisation Professional Practice Tutor for Unit 10 at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL.
In addition to gaining experience in the UK, Jon has spent time in America working for Morphosis Architects in Los Angeles.
