Carl Turner
BA (Hons), MA (RCA), ARB, RIBA

Carl is the founding Director of Carl Turner Architects (CTA). He leads the firm and is directly involved with all projects, a key benefit of working with a dedicated practice. He is an award winning designer, teacher and thinker. Carl is a true maker at heart.

Carl trained at the Royal College of Art (RCA) in London. He was a member of the first cohort of Research Associates to graduate from the Helen Hamlyn Research Centre, working alongside BAA on Heathrow terminal T5. This project generated ideas about instinctive wayfinding and accessibility, working with visually impaired user groups. Carl has previously worked with many practices, most notably Foster and Partners where he was part of the City Bank delivery team at Canary Wharf, and Penoyre & Prasad Architects working on community projects including the Millenium Visitor Centre, Barking & Dagenham.

Teaching has formed an important role within the practice. Carl has taught at the AA, RCA, Greenwich and Brighton Universities, and has been an external examiner at London Southbank for 5 years. He has also lectured widely in the UK and overseas. He is a member of the Southwark Design Review Panel and a fellow of the RSA. Carl was elected as Regional and London Council Member for the RIBA.
