James started his architectural career in London working for Skidmore Owings and Merrill from 2001-2006. During these early years he worked on numerous large scale, high profile projects including Pier D at Dublin Airport, public space enhancements at Broadgate and large scale residential projects in London and Lisbon. It was during the public enhancement projects that James and a colleague won an in-house design competition for the award winning public space at Finsbury Avenue Square.

All architecture great and small.
