Department of Architecture



Born in Athens and based in London, Freddie Phillipson was educated at Cambridge and MIT. As Associate Director of Witherford Watson Mann Architects, Freddie was project architect for Astley Castle, winner of the 2013 Stirling Prize. Freddie’s own practice, founded in 2018, was selected as one of the Architects’ Journal’s 40 under 40 in 2020 and has been published in the Architecture Foundation’s survey of UK practices founded in the last ten years, New Architects 4.

Alongside practice, Freddie has taught design studios for over ten years at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. He has lectured widely and his published articles explore the relations between architectural drawing, design, and topographic thinking – the subject of his forthcoming book on architecture and the city through the work of James Joyce.
