An artist and dancer, Alby is appreciative of form and movement and sculpture. He takes particular delight in the architecture of Italy, how it focuses on the experience of and moving through space. Alby develops ideas and themes with clear, focused options, characterised by the vigour, engagement and resolution he adds to all projects.

Alby joined S&T in 2010, taking on the post of Associate in 2012 before being appointed as Associate Principal in 2016.  He is dedicated to high quality design and documentation and has a passion for architectural design which offers an experiential layer of social and contextual interaction.

“I love adding a sense of drama to spaces, whether it be subtle or spectacular... experimenting with different depths and compositions; challenging what’s around the next bend? That’s me, a seeker of means”.
