Philip Hutton

Symmetry and repetition, euclidean values and Classicism are informing contemporary art and their influence on architecture is something Philip has explored. Landscape and architecture are close companions – Constantinos Doxiadis’ PhD on the planning of sacred edifices in Ancient Greece has been a valuable source in his projects. The use of archaic solutions to solve contemporary problems, studying ancient wonders such as the Temple of Solomon, develops each project as an amalgam of civic, social and sacred values.

He spends his weekends restoring a house of eighteen thirty-two below Dover Castle, which was built for officers of the Garrison, and is soon to commence his MA in Architecture.
