Person1 Person2

Fenella Griffin is a qualified landscape architect who has worked between teaching and practice since 1990. Following a period at EDAW (now AECOM) in London, Colmar and San Fransisco, she taught at the Architectural Association, London Metropolitan University, and Kingston University, while pursuing practice as research and collaboration.

This has led to European and RIBA competition-winning entries and ongoing consultancy with the recent completion of these projects. Fenella’s contribution has been recognised by RIBA and Landscape Institute competition juries as excellent.

Murray Smith is a qualified architect with proven experience across many building types. He spent twenty years at award-winning international practice John McAslan + Partners, including nine as a Director, during which time he led projects across urban infrastructure, residential and commercial mixed uses, education and culture, and adaptive re-use / refurbishment. He also edited the practice’s periodical journal, and ‘Culture of Building’ monograph.

Murray was recently a delegate on UK Trade & Investment’s Green and Sustainable Buildings Mission to Seoul, South Korea, where Untitled Practice’s contribution focused on sustainable green infrastructure.
