John Puttick Associates
John Puttick founded John Puttick Associates in 2014 with the competition winning entry to refurbish the iconic Preston Bus Station. The Brutalist landmark re-opened to the public in 2018 and was selected by both the BBC and The Observer as one of the architectural highlights of the year. The project has won National and Regional RIBA awards. The success of the Bus Station has led to work on a number of other civic and community buildings including a museum remodelling in Hertfordshire, the refurbishment and extension of a Grade II* Listed Charles Barry-designed church in Brighton and a series of new build youth centres across the UK. John Puttick Associates has also completed projects in the US and China. Born in the UK, John studied architecture at the University of Nottingham and the Bartlett, UCL where he subsequently taught a Diploma unit. He has lived and worked in London, New York and Beijing and a book of his drawings is held in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
