Chris studied architecture at the University of Sheffield and became an RIBA qualified architect in the mid-nineties. He has lived in London for over 20 years and, as well as working for a number of high-profile architectural practices in the city, he has spent the last 14 years teaching the History of Architecture in London for Boston University (USA). Chris particularly enjoys giving guided tours and exploring the many layers of London's architectural history from its Roman origins to present day hi-tech architecture. He has a special interest in developments in the city either side of the 1666 Great Fire of London, and the Battle of the Styles between Gothic and Classical architecture. He has worked and travelled extensively in Latin America and Europe and is a fluent Spanish speaker.
