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.

Research Interests

Craig’s work has been published internationally in exhibitions, edited books and conference journals including: The Competition Grid by RIBA Publishing, All Inclusive Engagement in Architecture by Routledge and Emergent Community Governance presented at the 2016 SEEDS International Conference.

In 2016 Project Office completed New Wortley Community Centre, the largest student designed live project to be built in the UK to date, which subsequently won the Live Project Network Category of the SEED (Social, Economic, Environmental Design) Awards, presented at SFI17 (Structures for Inclusion Conference) in Portland, Oregon in 2017. The project also made the shortlist of the RIBA Journal’s MacEwan Award in 2018.
