Architect, television presenter, lecturer and writer, Channel 4, MOBIE
George is an architect, television presenter, campaigner and educator. He passionately believes that architecture, art and design should be accessible to everyone and has the power to transform and enrich lives. Whether he is designing a new home, restoring or converting historic buildings or transforming existing houses on television, he recognizes and values the process that enables people to unlock the beauty of where they live. He realised early on in his career that the concept of home embodied the possibility to a more inclusive approach to good architectural practice. There generally is no place like home. This is the space which allows for a creative form of expression that we can all embrace and manipulate: whether it’s transforming a tiny bedroom or managing a large-scale build, we all have the possibility of experimenting with our environment and in doing so improving the way we live and hopefully learn something new along the way.
