Fellow, Director Global Foresight, Research + Innovation
Chris’s interest in the built environment blossomed early, propelling him to pursue a multi-faceted education, beginning with engineering and culminating in a Doctorate in Architecture from ETH in Zurich, a city to which he remains deeply connected. Chris gained valuable experience as the protégé of esteemed Spanish Architect, Santiago Calatrava. But, subsequently he turned to his other love, education, by accepting teaching positions at several prestigious universities. In 1999, Chris joined Arup as the co-Director for Research and Development. A couple of years later, he formed the Foresight, Innovation and Incubation team, which has evolved into its present form as Research + Foresight + Innovation. Email.
