Architect

John Lonsdale (1965) studied Architecture at the Architectural Association in London. In 2001 he was awarded the Prix de Rome for Landscape Architecture and Urbanism for his work called Shifting Horizons before founding his practice John Lonsdale Architect in 2004. He explores the relationship between architecture and landscape using buildings, or architecture, as the means through which to express his art. He is the recipient of several Architecture Foundation awards for design and research most recently for the project ‘Mud Ways, Towards a Shifting Architecture’.

He has taught as a guest lecturer in Architecture and Landscape Architecture at several schools including the Ecole Nationale Supérieure du Paysage, Versailles, the University of Eindhoven School of Architecture, the Academies of Architecture in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Arnhem and Tilburg as well as in the Immediate Spaces programme at the Sandberg Institute. He has led workshops and given talks on the subject of architecture and the perception of landscape.

Since 2014 he has shifted his practice to Northumberland where he has been working on the restoration of a farmstead where he now lives for much of the year.
