Jo is co-director of Editional Studio a Manchester based architecture and design shop that celebrates sustainable, considered design. We work from our high-street shop, on projects of all scales and with a diversity of people, embracing the chance encounters that come with shopkeeping. The studio is profiled in the Architect’s Journal 40 under 40 “a who’s who of the nation’s next generation of boundary-pushing designers and innovators” and we are featured in the Architecture Foundation’s ‘New Architects 4’ showcasing the best practices in British architecture of the last 10 years.
Jo completed her RIBA Part 1 at Manchester School of Architecture with a First Class Honours and her Parts 2 and 3 at London Metropolitan University and the Architecture Association, graduating from both with Distinction. She continues to work in academia, running a masters studio at The University of Sheffield researching retrofit and re-use. She has been a guest reviewer at The University of Cambridge, London Metropolitan University and The University of Nottingham. She has previously given talks with MatriArch and UrbanistasNW and continues to be advocate for a more representative industry.
