Joe Morris

Founding Director
BA (Hons) DipArch ARB RIBA

Joe Morris is an architect spearheading Morris+Company across two studios, one in the creative district of London’s Shoreditch, the other in Copenhagen. In a career spanning 25 years of professional practice which has achieved widespread international recognition, Joe has increasingly advocated a sense of urgency for fair and transparent practice, inclusivity and equality, through open dialogue and critical debate, whilst encouraging the broader company to take ownership of projects and develop their own careers and interests.

Joe has represented the practice on a global platform, lecturing on the work of the studio in many leading UK universities, as well as in Barcelona, Bilbao, Buenos Aires, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Liege and more recently Romania. He has taught at the Bartlett School of Architecture in London, the Universidad de Navvara in Pamplona and La Salle School of Architecture in Barcelona and has been a visiting examiner at Plymouth and Oxford Brookes universities. Joe is a founding participator in Londonon a global self initiated research programme exploring a world view on cities across Europe, and has also contributed to a number of local authority design review panels, including Lewisham, Brent, Hackney and currently, Southwark.

Joe believes in the potential for a more compassionate, sustainable global economy and seeks to raise awareness of interdependent global issues whilst following a strict vegan philosophical attitude to life. Beyond practice, Joe is collaboratively exploring the confluence of diet, agriculture, architecture and creative output through SITE, a project housed in a nineteenth century terraced building in Hackney, East London. SITE is actively engaged in circular economics, sustainable cooking and associated ethical practices of production, supply and waste management.
