Kurtis gained his Part 1 from the University of Liverpool. His final project, ‘Nuclear Thermae’,was nominated for the RIBA bronze medal. The project looked at attitudes towards nuclear fuel and its place in the environmental crisis. Kurtis currently works at Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios in London where he will stay during his practice placement at the LSA. He has a keen interest in architectural visualisation, but outside work, he can often be found on his bike exploring London, reading or visiting buildings.
