Prior to formal Architectural training David was accepted as an intern at Foster + Partners. During his time there he worked under senior partner Grant Brooker (director of Foster Hong Kong) on ‘The Walbrook’, a £300m mixed use development complementing the practice’s growing body of work in the City of London. Walbrook is an office building on a compact site adjacent to the Mansion House and Wren’s Church of St Stephen Walbrook.
In 2008, David left Foster + Partners to study at the Kent School of Architecture.
Completing his undergraduate degree in 2011, David moved to London to work for TFF Architects, a design led practice founded in 2004 by Malcolm Thornton, David Field, and Simeon Fuller. The practice boats a broad portfolio ranging from private houses to large complex development projects, from Listed Buildings to new build contemporary schemes.
In 2012 David was accepted on the MArch program at the Westminster School of Architecture where he joined and is currently working in Design Studio 10 led by Arthur Mamou-Mani (Atelier Jean Nouvel, Zaha Hadid Architects + Proctor and Matthews Architects) and Toby Burgess (Gianni Botsford + Grimshaw architects).
David joined DS10 due to his fascination in natural structural systems, sustainable design and use of digital tools. Through the use of these tools for analysis, formal generation and fabrication, DS10 seeks an architecture of beauty which responds intelligently to it’s environment and sits within a wider cultural context.
