Hugh Gatenby


Hugh’s work at the LSA has twinned lessons from natural phenomena and technological progress. These two inspirations underpinned his thesis The Connected Class, with a cellular architectural language, and a programme integrating augmented reality into schooling. He was part of the LSA’s Global Currents Think Tank which imagined a dream of Walthamstow as a tourism strategy for the inaugural Borough of Culture.

Hugh’s practice placement was with John McAslan + Partners. During his year there he worked principally on Russian cultural and commercial projects, and was featured in the exhibition ‘Emerging Architects’, held in the William Road Gallery. He previously worked in Paris with Lina Ghotmeh—Architecture. Hugh’s Part 1 was at the University of Edinburgh’s ESALA, where he was the beneficiary of a Principal’s Teaching Award, supporting a research project. He has also studied at the Urban Design faculty of Parsons School of Design in New York.
