Steve Alton


Prior to the LSA, Steve worked for three years at a variety of award-winning design practices; Studio Octopi, Liddicoat & Goldhill and David Kohn Architects.

During his studies at the LSA, Steve aimed to develop his understanding of architecture’s relationship with the design process while working freelance for Outpost. He explored iterative R+D models for small design studios in his Critical Practice module.

His thesis project:⁠ A Residency, addressed post-Brexit cultural decline through a new, international artist residency for Newham, London. The residency proposed an alternative live/work model⁠—where the building acts as a framework for living. The architecture is still, so that life can be really alive.

After the LSA, Steve hopes to further develop his thesis position: embarking on a drawing tour of Europe.
