Tom joined Bryden Wood in summer 2016 after graduating from the University of Westminster where he was part of a studio specialising in parametric design and digital fabrication. This culminated in a thesis project that proposed a new model of shared living as a counterpoint to social isolation, based on investigations into the moiré effect and architectural porosity. In his first year Tom also helped to construct three student-designed pavilions at Burning Man festival in Nevada, USA.
Tom is interested in utilising a parametric approach to explore multiple elements simultaneously early in the design process, creating more opportunities to add value and improve quality. He is currently working on a residential masterplanning scheme on a sensitive site in Ealing and a private hospital facility in Birmingham.
Previously Tom spent a year at an architectural practice in Bristol, working primarily in the education and housing sectors. More recently he has spent two years at a practice in East London specialising in private residential projects, where he worked closely with an in-house construction team to deliver efficient, high quality design and build solutions.
