Jonathon’s university research projects included a spatial analysis of infrastructure and social impacts, published as Data Mapping Cornwall by MSA Press. This project interpreted public and big data to inform projects of wider social impact. This led to a design project, Tin Valley, creating a campus for start-up businesses to thrive in a dispersed environment.

He studied previously at Liverpool John Moores University, with a first-class degree exploring realms of urban transport and infrastructure, cinematography, and sustainable landscapes. He is currently working in the atelier Infrastructure Space, exploring the influence of digital mobility on urban and rural space.

He had previously worked for Lovelock Mitchell Architects as an Architectural Assistant in Chester, where he refined his physical modelmaking skills, working on a listed hospice care centre and a refrigerated road-bridge project.

Jonathon has worked on numerous projects at varying stages. Most recently he has worked at detailed and construction stages, on the modular student project of Savoy Circus in Acton, on which he had previously worked at planning. He has also worked on many projects at the design stage, including Graylingwell, Castleward in Derby, and the Aylesbury masterplan’s First Development Site in Southwark.

He also worked on a number landscape projects, alongside both internal and external teams. These include South Quay Plaza in Canary Wharf, Mulberry Park in Bath, Project Light in Canada Water, and many more. This included producing conceptual imagery for bid documents; using his strengths in hand sketching and computer imagery, as well as detailed design, developing the use of BIM for landscape within the practice.

Jonathon is currently working on producing working drawings on the NLA commended West Green Place.
