Mr Thom Brisco


Having studied architecture at the University of Sheffield, the Glasgow School of Art, and the University of Cambridge, I have since worked within the studios of Jamie Fobert Architects and Duggan Morris Architects. In 2021 I established Brisco Loran architects with Pandora Loran, alongside whom I combine teaching and practice.

The practice's work has won RIBA awards and been shortlisted for the Architects' Journal's Small Project Award on three occasions, alongside a shortlisting for the RIBA Journal's MacEwen award. Its work was selected for inclusion in the Royal Academy's 2022 Summer Show and for 'New Architects 4' published by the Architecture Foundation in 2021.
