Fraser Morrison, Architectural Assistant
Fraser joined Project Orange in 2019 having just completed his studies at the London School of Architecture. Currently working on new projects in Russia, he has been applying his knowledge of tall buildings to create a vision for a new vertical architectural language in Moscow.
His thesis project investigated the impact of a super vertical recycling architecture in the heart of London. Intended as totems of waste, his investigation of tall buildings sought to repurpose the typology for positive change instead of the currently high value assets they’ve become. His tower investigations have been exhibited as part of the Archifringe in Scotland alongside Farshid Moussavi, Sam Jacob, and Kate MacKintosh and Blueprint’s for the future exhibition gaining an honourable mention.
Previously he worked at Squire & Partners alongside Herzog & De Meuron on the extension of the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance and additional high-end residential towers. Other practice experience includes working on a residential masterplan with Bjark Ingels Group in Albany the Bahamas, and the concept design for the University of Edinburgh’s Futures Institute whilst at Bennetts Associates Edinburgh.
Outside of practice Fraser has been a guest critic at the University of Edinburgh and the Mackintosh in Glasgow, currently running a series of post-digital drawing workshops for a variety of architecture schools in the UK. His main mission this summer is to create a series of large scale models furthering his exploration of his thesis with the help of Richard Wentworth.
