John Lonsdale, BA (Hons.) Arch., AA Dipl.
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 shape and draw out meaning in his art. He has been given Architecture Foundation awards for design and research most recently for the work ‘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 & Marseilles, the Universities of Eindhoven and Delft and the Academies of Architecture in The Netherlands as well as in the Immediate Spaces programme at the Sandberg Institute. He is now teaching in the graduate programme at Northumbria University.

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