Modern Architect is the architectural practice of artist and architect, Sean Griffiths. Sean was a founder member of the art/architecture practice FAT until it’s dissolution in 2014. FAT’s work drew on the relationships between architecture, art and popular culture. It represented the UK at the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale, creating an exhibition about British new towns, which featured some of the original drawings of Milton Keynes alongside two of the city’s famous concrete cows. FAT is also known for a number of architectural projects in Britain and Europe, including A House for Essex, designed in collaboration with the artist, Grayson Perry and the New Islington social housing project in Manchester.
Since 2014 Sean has exhibited numerous installation works including, “Sliding Gate” at the South Bank Centre in London, “Distant Drumbeat” at Lyme Park, Cheshire and “Another Mountain, Another Forest” at the Kunstforening, Tromsø, Norway.
