About Craig Stott
Craig Stott (MEng, BArch, MA, ARB) is a Project Office co-director, Architect and Senior Architecture Lecturer at the Leeds School of Architecture, Leeds Beckett University.
Originally trained as a Structural Engineer, Craig’s research attempts to determine the impact of ‘Live’ project learning within architectural education by establishing its value for both the students involved and the communities who act as client for the work undertaken. The intention is to utilise the power of student design to foster ecological and social sustainability in deprived communities through this pedagogic tool.
Craig is the undergraduate Technology coordinator and leads the BA studio CITYzen Agency which situates its explorations in neglected places of post-industrial cities. They consider global imperatives and local issues together, exploring their interconnection and consequence of each on the other. The studio is linked to Project Office, which is a design and research collaboration of staff and students. It is a RIBA Chartered Architecture Practice concerned with making ethical, social and resilient architecture and design.
