Russell Taylor is an architect designing in the Classical tradition. After an early career engaged in working on non-descript modernist schemes, he found there were clients interested in commissioning the sort of architecture which he wanted to design: beautiful buildings having a sense of continuity with the past.
Educated at Kingston School of Art and the Architectural Association he worked with the Classicists Robert Chitham (at Chapman Taylor Partners) and, for a short period, with John Simpson before joining the traditionalist practice Carden & Godfrey where he was made a partner. In 2005 he founded Russell Taylor Architects a practice with offices in London and Cornwall.
He is a member of INTBAU and the International College of Traditional Practitioners. Since 2016 Russell has been a teacher at The European Summer School for Classical Architecture. He is also a Trustee of The Georgian Group, a Brother of The Art Workers’ Guild, and a Liveryman of The Worshipful Company of Masons.
