Thomas Bryans

First Year Design Tutor

Thomas is an architect and founding director of IF_DO. The practice won acclaim in 2017 for its design of the inaugural Dulwich Pavilion, for which it was shortlisted for the AR’s Emerging Architecture Award, and saw its directors named as three of London’s 1000 most influential people by the Evening Standard newspaper on their annual Progress 1000 list.

Thomas is a big-picture thinker by nature, and is passionate about delivering holistically sustainable architecture, which was the subject of his 2017 TEDx talk “Architecture’s Ripple Effect: Designing for Big Impact”. This attitude underpins his work at IF_DO, which has included the delivery of the Joseph Walsh Studio masterplan in County Cork, Ireland, and the St Teresa’s School Sixth Form Centre in Surrey.

Thomas is a graduate of the University of Edinburgh and Harvard University Graduate School of Design.
