LionHeart

LionHeart is an award winning Poet, BBC Radio London Presenter and TEDx Speaker.

An honorary fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) for his contribution to architecture, LionHeart’s work within the industry is extensive. He is the first Poet in Residence at Grimshaw Architects (visiting and working with various offices globally), Snohetta, Squires & Partners, PLP and practices in Japan (Junya Ishigami, Tezuka Architects and more). Using poetry, he is particularly interested in expressing the influence an architect’s design can have on mental health. Through interviewing and working closely with architects, he observes the relationship buildings have with our cognitive behaviour, and how that in turn, forms as well as informs our sense of wellbeing. These findings are then used as the basis for a collection of poems, workshops, performance pieces and commissioned articles exploring how the application of materials, form and lighting within the built environment impacts us.

Along with various residencies, he is the winner of the Davidson Prize 2021 with Haptic Architects & Squint Opera team as well as winning the Skiagraphia Prize by Architecture + Design Film Festival https://adff.ca in collaboration with Jim Stephenson. LionHeart was selected as Dezeen Awards Judge for 2020. He has been a Guest Speaker at Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) at both their Copenhagen and London offices as well as the Guest Editor for the Wellcome Collection for their ‘Living With Buildings’ exhibition.

In addition to his work in the built environment, LionHeart is the first Poet in Residence at the prestigious Saatchi Gallery, exploring and creating works in response to the art work, pertaining to mental health. LionHeart has been commissioned by brands including IWC, Bentley, Warner Music Group, Lloyds of London, the BBC, the British Library and Gillette for various campaigns and performed at the Royal Albert Hall for their 150th Anniversary.
