Prior to joining Public Practice, Michael worked with London Community Land Trust to successfully bid for public land to build truly affordable community-led housing through the Greater London Authority’s Small Sites x Small Builders initiative. He was a consultee for the RIBA Ethics and Sustainability Commission and has been delivering research into the affordability of architectural education at Central Saint Martins.
Part of the second cohort of Public Practice, Michael joined Enfield’s Strategic Planning and Design Team as a Planning Officer in Urban Design. He led on managing the Council’s newly established Place and Design Quality Review Panel. He was involved in promoting the use of the Panel within Enfield and beyond, and he explored opportunities to expand its influence to improve emerging planning policy and other Council strategies and projects that have an impact on the quality and design of the built environment.
