Fergus Feilden

Architecture & Built EnvironmentArts

Fergus co-founded Feilden Fowles in 2009 with the ambition to create a leading architecture practice specializing in the arts, culture, education, and heritage sectors, working strategically with institutions and local authorities on placemaking and estate plans. He is a champion for improving access to architecture and has been involved with Open City’s Accelerate Programme, teaching and lecturing at Bath and Sheffield Universities and leading community-focused projects such as Bath Arts Depot. His passion for socially and environmentally responsible architecture is born out of a love for the natural world, his enjoyment of low-tech design, and using natural materials.

Feilden Fowles studio is based on the city farm they designed in Waterloo, a socially oriented project for charities Oasis and Jamie’s Farm. Fergus is leading several arts and culture projects, including Nature + Love at the Horniman Museum, Black Robin Farm, a new arts and education centre in the South Downs National Park, and Central Hall at the National Railway Museum. Previously he worked on the Stirling Prize shortlisted Weston Gallery at Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Working with leading institutions to unpick complex briefs has provided a depth of design leadership experience, excellent communication skills, and an understanding of how to deliver holistic and successful projects. Alongside practice, he has been a RIBA Awards chair and is a visiting professor at the University of Sheffield.
