James grew up in Bedfordshire and gained a BA in Architecture from The Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design. He can generally be found exploring the streets of London on foot and enjoying sketching his surroundings. For his year out he was employed at LXA working on high-end projects in London and Dubai. He is excited to join the practice network and begin a new chapter gaining valuable experience at IDOM. James has an appreciation of heritage and traditional methods of design but was attracted to the course at the LSA because it embraces change in the pursuit of designing architecture for a better tomorrow.
