JCA is led by architect Jack Carter. Our talented team deliver outstanding design and have fun doing it. Our work ranges from small, finely crafted pavilions for private clients to exceptional large scale, mixed-use developments for commercial clients, to pioneering community-led projects. This rich and varied experience provides a strong technical foundation and knowledge base for the practice.
Studio members include Abigail Portus, Fabrizio Primavera, George Courtauld, Marina Penso and Tom Dobinson.
Prior to establishing JCA in 2016, Jack Carter worked for 17 years at the Renzo Piano Building Workshop in Paris, leading a variety of internationally recognised projects. These included The New York Times Building, New York; The News Building and Shard Place at London Bridge, London; and Jurassica, a proposal for a palaeontological museum in a disused quarry in Dorset. JCA continue to collaborate with RPBW in the UK, supporting the delivery of the London Bridge Quarter.
Good architecture often outlasts its architect; great architecture may endure for ten times as long. The impact of architecture on the environment is long term and significant. We believe architects must acknowledge that what they do today shapes the environment for generations to come. As a practice we are committed to collaborating with industry leading consultants to deliver projects that address this responsibility.
