Jonathan Weatherill is a practising architect who has lived and worked in Italy since graduating from the Architectural Association in London over 25 years ago. He runs his own practice and has also collaborated with 2014 Driehaus laureate Pier Carlo Bontempi since they met in Milan thirty years ago. His professional experience has spanned the genres of Modernism and Classicism, in a wide range of fields from industrial design to restoration and urban planning.
He is inspired by the timelessness of the rural vernacular and the elegant equilibrium of architectural language of the past. His work is the result of an eclectic education informed by his varied experience and the comprehension of local reality through investigation and on-site and archival documentation. Watercolor sketching and photography are valuable tools in this process.
