Rob Gregory joined Feilden Clegg Architects after graduating from the University of Bath in 1996 with first-class honours. In 1998 he moved to Michael Hopkins and Partners, where he spent three years working on Manchester City Art Gallery.
Toward the end of this period, Gregory’s master’s thesis, Liberation: the Spirit of the Festival of Britain, was published in the Architectural Review, leading him to pursue work as a freelance journalist, writing technical and building-study features for a range of publications. As his writing career became more time-consuming, he took a part-time position at Allies and Morrison, where he spent two years working on the refurbishment strategy for the Royal Festival Hall.
In April 2003 he was offered the position of assistant editor of the Architectural Review – where he is still employed. He is the founder and proprietor of Becket Hall Studios in Bristol, trustee of The Architecture Centre, also in Bristol, and for three years has been a visiting design and dissertation tutor at the University of Bath. He has also been a visiting critic and lecturer at University College London and at Arkitektskolen Aarhus, Denmark.
