Oliver has studied architecture and town planning in Bristol and Paris. Before this, he spent four years working as an aircraft engineer in the Royal Navy, working on helicopters in the Middle East.
Oliver has since spent a year working with a conscientious housing developer and a further year at AHMM office where he has worked almost exclusively on residential schemes.
Oliver is interested in the idea of merging the roles of architect and developer. He is looking to design a new model of housing procurement during his time at the LSA.
