About 

Hi. I’m Oliver, a student and practitioner of architecture, currently living in Barcelona. I’ve studied architecture since 2007, completing a BSc in Architectural Design and Technology and an MA in Architecture (History and Theory). My passion for architecture lies mostly in the subversive and counter-cultural aspects of its practice, occupation and theory. Something, which can be seen across the body of my work to date and what I’m working on right now. My current aim is to diversify my understanding of architecture more broadly by extending my professional and academic experience outside of its current limits. Particularly, I would like to work as part of a small design team responsible for bold yet sensitive projects involving architecture, art and design.
