About

Craig joined our University in 2010. With a background in structural engineering, he has worked at Arup Associates and CDA before teaching at the Manchester School of Architecture. In 2013, Craig and colleague Simon Warren founded the Project Office within the School of Art, Architecture and Design. Project Office is a design and research collaboration of staff and students, and a registered architecture consultancy concerned with ethical, social and resilient architecture and design.

Projects

Project Office is the architectural consultant for the New Wortley Community Centre, a Big Lottery funded project awarded in 2014. The Morley Newlands Playscape, completed by the Project Office in 2014, is now included in the online Buildings Library of the Architects’ Journal.

Interests

Closed Loop Urbanism, a concept which suggests that by understanding material resource flows within a city, it is possible to implement a series of systems where everything is reused. Combining his passion for ecological design with structural engineering, Craig is particularly interested in the ‘living edge’ of architecture: building skins and façades. His research specialism concentrates on Upcyclable Intelligent Façades and the role they can play in helping achieve resilient and ecologically undamaging cities.
