Tom Greenall is a London-based Architect who graduated from The University of Sheffield in 2005 with a First Class honours degree in architecture, before completing his masters at the Royal College of Art in London.

He graduated from the RCA with a distinction in 2009, winning the Alsop Award for Urbanism and a place in Building Design magazine’s Class of 2009 – a national student prize given to the top six architecture graduates of the year.

With his thesis project, Tom focused on the potential for religious texts to be used as design guidance and has subsequently been commissioned by the writer Alain de Botton to collaborate on a new book concerned with secular society.

Tom has also completed award-winning buildings with architects DSDHA, whose Christ’s College Secondary School was shortlisted for the 2010 Stirling Prize, and has written for both Building Magazine and Building Design magazine.
