Conor graduated from the Mackintosh School of Architecture in 2018 where his thesis focused on the development of a new public space for Madrid, informed by the development of a queer architectural framework. His dissertation examined changes in LGBTQI+ nightlife within the city of Glasgow between 1996 – 2016. He currently works as an Urban Design Officer at the London Borough of Hackney.’
Conor will focus into LGBTQI space and how a ‘queer architecture’ could act as a catalyst for positive change within the city.
