Chris Boyce has worked in architecture for twenty years, after studying at the Glasgow School of Art and Bartlett he quickly rose to Director level at two of the UK's largest AJ100 practices, and was a board level Design Director at Capita|ESA. He led his team there to an RIBA National Award and four Civic Trust commendations. In Autumn of 2017 he founded Assorted Skills + Talents* a client centred design practice, with offices in Manchester and London, which crosses boundaries between architecture, property strategy, and digital creative consultancy. The practice has no sector speciality instead bringing their unique viewpoint to multiple complex projects from large scale housing to civic and community buildings. Chris has also been an RIBA awards and AJ Awards judge as well as taking part in reviews at the Bartlett and Manchester schools of architecture.
