Philip Buckingham MSAI


I am an architecturally trained freelance illustrator with over 10 years industry experience. I work with Architecture, Interiors, Design and Marketing companies to bring designs to life through professional architectural illustrations.

Working closely with you, your design is hand-drawn and stylistically tailored to suit your project type and project stage. Companies I have worked with include Grimshaw ArchitectsHawkins Brown, Allies & Morrison and Pentagram. I have been exhibited internationally with work featured in The Architectural Review, Architecture Today and the RIBA Journal. I also run Draw Like An Architect, a platform for teaching freehand architectural drawing. I have taught classes for the RIBA, London Festival of Architecture and the Museum of Architecture.
