Robert is a founding member of last year’s winning team for the inaugural Dencity Competition in collaboration with Augustin Schoenmaeckers, Lucia Fanetti and Riccardo Valsesia. His team, The OC Workshop, is an international collective of enthusiastic people joined together with the aim of giving birth to an architecture led by design and ethical ideals rather than financial returns or checklists. Robert received his Master’s in Architecture from the University of Kent in Canterbury, where he was nominated for the RIBA president’s metal. He has worked for firms both in England and abroad gaining a wide range of experience in spatial planning, contemporary building techniques and urban planning. In addition to his work with the OC Workshop, Robert is the director of ElkinsArchitects based in rural Wiltshire.
