Tom Holbrook is co-founder of 5th Studio, a spatial design agency working across the fields of architecture, urban design, infrastructure and landscape. In combination with practice, he is Professor of Architecture and Industry Fellow at RMIT University, and directs the urban studies programme at the London School of Architecture.
"Holbrook skilfully acts as both impresario and ethical husbander; the former at ease weaving and diving as opportunistic entrepreneur, the latter immersed in a legacy of English socialism. This is an apposite piece of research, offering spatial intelligence as a basis for synthesised thought to unpick the current conundrum of planning and governance."
