About me

Having trained at the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and the Bartlett, UCL, Chris has worked as both a theatre consultant (with Charcoalblue) and as an architect (with Eric Parry, amongst others). In 2011 he was part of a small group that built the Yard Theatre in Hackney Wick and remained a trustee until 2018.

He was nominated for the 2019 Arts Foundation Fellowship in Experimental Architecture and is London coordinator for the Long Now Foundation.

Teaching
