Philip studied architecture at the University of Nottingham, achieving a first class degree. He has a particular interest in designing and researching through making and appreciates the tangible aspect of model making.
His thesis project, Re:Establishing the Making Town, was based in Ireland and focused on integrating traditional craft and digital technologies into society through collaborative making and design spaces, enhanced by his passion of the socio-economic and historical aspects of architecture.
Philip is enthused by construction and materials that developed from working with intricate sites in Cambridge. He contributed to a research project quantifying the in-use benefits of aluminium in architecture in collaboration with the International Aluminium Institute.
Away from work, Philip enjoys walking in the great outdoors, exploring new places with friends and swimming competitively.
