Sam Coulton

Multidisciplinary Designer

I am a London based multidisciplinary designer working across architectural, set and production design.


I have worked on projects for studios including RSHPEBBA, Matthew Butcher Studio, Block9 & SWEAR. In particular as designer for the Brit Awards 2022 and Gorillaz Live Shows 2023 for Swear; and as architectural lead for IICON for Block9 at Glastonbury Festival.

Awarded the Sir Banister Fletcher Medal for attaining the highest marks from the Bartlett School of Architecture in 2018, I am also a Lecturer in Drawing and Digital Skills at UCL and have taught in London since 2015.​

My academic work received a commendation for the RIBA Silver Medal and has been published in Dezeen. Whilst my thesis has been published in AJAR: Arena Journal of Architectural Research. I am also a current member of the RIBA Educational Development Group, working to help talented and disadvantaged students to achieve their degrees.
