The London School of Architecture (LSA) Founder Will Hunter has announced he will complete his tenure as Chief Executive at the end of the academic year 2020/21. From the academic year 2021/22, he will continue at the LSA in the new part-time role of Director of Entrepreneurship. Consequently, the search for a new leader of the LSA will start this October.

Crispin Kelly, Chair of the Board of Trustees says:

“The Board of Trustees salutes Will Hunter. He came up with an idea and turned it into a living and breathing reality, a school rooted in practice that empowers its diverse students to do what he has done: to shape where and how we can all live life for the better. Following a further year of his continued leadership of the school, we greatly look forward to continuing to collaborate with Will in new ways.”

Will Hunter, Founder / Chief Executive says:

“It has been the greatest privilege of my life to found the London School of Architecture. I conceived the idea in 2010, and I’m delighted that only a decade on, my many excellent supporters, colleagues and pioneering students have succeeded in making the school into a thriving reality and force for change. The time has come for me to embark on new ventures where I feel I can make further impact. I am delighted that from 2021/22, I will continue in a part-time role at the LSA as Director of Entrepreneurship, which will include contributing to student design teaching.”


Professor Robert Mull will chair the Search Committee, which will include LSA staff, students, alumni and members of the school’s Practice Network. Further information on the leadership role of the LSA will be published in due course.
