Jonathan Woodroffe graduated from the University of Portsmouth Department of Architecture in 1989, where he received his degree and diploma.  In 1997, Jonathan co-founded S333 Architecture + Urbanism in Amsterdam. He works freely between the disciplines of architecture and urban design and has over 20 years experience of working on large-scale urban and architectural projects.

As an architect, Jonathan has been director-in-charge of several award winning projects for S333 Architecture + Urbanism. He was co-responsible for S333's first completed project, Schots 1+2 in Groningen, which was voted the Best Building in Groningen in 2003 and shortlisted for the 2003 Mies van der Rohe Awards for Contemporary Architecture.

As an urbanist, Jonathan works has been responsible for strategic regeneration plans, waterfront masterplans and large-scale urban visions across Europe. Jonathan is currently director-in-charge of a 3000m2 leisure development in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, a 33ha mixed-use integrated masterplan in Suzhou, China and a 25ha mixed-use sustainable community in Lagos, Nigeria.

Hosted by The Mackintosh School of Architecture, the Architecture Friday Lecture Series looks beyond buildings and makes connections between architecture and wider issues like culture and the urban environment.
