Kevin McCloud

Designer, Writer, TV Presenter

Kevin McLoud - Keynote Speaker

Kevin admits to an obsession for buildings since childhood: he studied the history of them at the University of Cambridge. Since,
he has written about, built and designed buildings, he has lived and breathed every aspect of architecture. He champions issues
such as context, the historic environment and sustainable construction, and has been a columnist for The Sunday Times. Kevin also
writes for Grand Designs magazine.

Kevin’s other forays into television include Don’t Look Down for BBC2, in which he climbed six tall buildings and Demolition for
Channel 4, in which he, George Ferguson, and Janet Street-Porter started a campaign to improve public space in our towns and
cities. Kevin appeared on Top Gear in 2008 and Kevin McCloud’s Grand Tour of Europe on Channel 4 in 2009. He presented
Slumming It in 2010 and continues to appear at the hugely successful Grand Designs Live shows.

Kevin was awarded two honorary doctorates, from Plymouth and Oxford Brookes, primarily for getting rid of the capital ‘A’ from
architecture. He is a recalcitrant patron of several architectural and sustainable charities, a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Foresters and a WWF Ambassador. He was awarded an MBE in 2014 for services to sustainable design and energy saving
property refurbishment.

When not filming, Kevin runs a product design practice. He has designed lighting for some of the finest buildings in Europe and
many great houses – Ely Cathedral, Edinburgh Castle, two European palaces, the Savoy and Dorchester hotels, to name a few.
Kevin has also written numerous highly acclaimed books. Kevin is a much sought-after speaker and awards host in the corporate sector.
