John Morgan

Board Member



John’s professional experience in the field of architecture spans both practice and academia. He is an Architect by training and also considers himself an urbanist and educator.

As practitioner, John holds RIBA Charter Membership and is a UK-Registered Architect (ARB). He has over fifteen years of full-time experience, gained while working for practices in London, Los Angeles and Toronto. At Allies and Morrison (2000-07), he was Associate responsible for leading a number of mixed-use projects situated in complex urban contexts. That position also provided exposure to the rigorous demands of all work stages, from planning negotiations and scheme design through to construction.

During that time, he developed an interest in making an authentic urban architecture. That led to his studying urbanism under Professor Robert Tavernor on the LSE’s renowned Cities programme. John completed his dissertation on the practicalities of implementing spatial policies for London’s Thames Gateway and graduated with MSc in Cities Design and Social Science (2007).

John then entered academia via a fixed-term tutoring contract for a Diploma-level studio at the Swiss university EPFL, Lausanne. He then joined the Mackintosh School of Architecture, Glasgow, where he transitioned towards tenured Lecturer. His responsibilities there included teaching studio and technical courses for the ARB/ RIBA-accredited Part 2 Diploma course and convening GSA’s Friday Lecture Series.

John Morgan’s career intersects the experiences of an architect, urbanist and educator. As an ARB examiner, he draws on a range of relevant areas of knowledge and experience. This includes teaching and curriculum development, which was gained during the past decade of working full-time in architectural education. Further, throughout the past three decades, he has maintained full Registration as an Architect with ARB and RIBA Chartered Membership. John’s academic qualifications includes degrees in architecture from the University of Waterloo, Canada (equivalent to ARB Parts 1+2) and an MSc in urbanism from the Cities Programme, London School of Economics. After serving as Assistant Professor, and latterly Course Director of the prescribed MArch Architecture (ARB/ RIBA Part 2) course at the University of Nottingham, he has recently made the decision to shift his professional focus towards design and making live projects through a return to private practice
