Jake Ogbonna Obichere
Jake completed his Part 1 at the University of Kent and was awarded the Gravett Prize award and the HMY Sketchbook prize for his undergraduate work. Whilst studying, he self-funded his way to Critical Concrete in Porto, Portugal where he underwent a three-week intensive building project. His exposure to community-led, participatory design and practice of sustainable architecture principles allowed him to see architecture holistically, in his eyes, as a protagonist for restoring social narratives, political and environmental disorders.
Jake has gained professional experience from Corstorphine & Wright Architects and recently with van Heyningen and Haward architects working on public school projects and adaptive reuse.
He is currently working at John McAslan + Partners for his LSA practice placement.
