Jack Newton

I am an architect an Associate Partner at Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners. I joined the practice in 2002 as a year out and following my graduation from the Bartlett in 2006 returned to RSHP (formally Richard Rogers Partnership). During this period I have worked on a variety of building and masterplanning projects at different stages of the design process, from concept to detail stage. The most noticeable of the projects I have worked on is the Leadenhall Building in the City of London from 2002, to its completion in Spring 2014. During this period I worked on the concept design, scheme design stage (stage 3) to tender and construction.

Other noticeable projects include the Protos Winery shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling prize, Riverlight’ a residential development in Battersea, the BREEAM Outstanding Central Building Redevelopment for The London School of Economics which won an RIBA national award and Marian Place Gasholder site. The latter recently granted planning approval for 555 homes including shared ownership and affordable rent homes on the former Bethnal Green gasholder site. I have also worked on concept stage schemes for masterplan, cultural and transport infurstrucure projects.

In addition to my project roles at RSHP I am also a member of the sustainability committee, diversity and inclusion group, mentor for the Building Futures Programme for Blueprint 4 All (formally The Stephen Laurence Trust) and lead of a Design Think Tank for the London School of Architecture.

Outside of practice I am a visiting lecturer and technical tutor at the Bartlett School of Architecture UCL as well as a critic for a number of undergraduate and postgraduate design studios. I have also organised and run workshops with local school children and various other groups about my work. I am currently volunteering my time and support for the redevelopment of the Bodicharoya Senior School in Kolkata West Bengal which I am working on in collaboration with Gianmaria Givanni. Other personal projects have also included a series of temporary installations, exhibiting at the RIBA International Awards.
