Matthew Knivett

Matthew joined CDR Studio in September 2018 as an intern. He graduated from the Welsh School of Architecture in July 2018 with a Bachelors of Science in Architecture. His final year design thesis investigated a platform for exchange and engagement across a range of ages. He explored intergenerational co-housing and how this could address an open neighbourhood in Post Olympic Stratford, East London.

In the summer between second and third years, Matthew volunteered with Caukin Studio in Fiji to help design and build a new community center for a small village on the northern island of Vanua Levu. He also has interned at Gensler's London office, where he worked on an office scheme in Canary Wharf and competition projects in Italy, Spain and London.
