George Ferguson

George Ferguson shares with Jaime Lerner that rare combination of an architect mayor. He was the first elected Mayor of Bristol, an Independent, (2012-2016) and is Past President of the RIBA (2003-2005). He trained and practiced as an architect in Bristol, founding Ferguson Mann Architects in 1979, and the national group, Acanthus Architects, in 1987. He is a strong believer in independent enterprise with his own regeneration projects including the creation of the renowned Tobacco Factory mixed use project that has had such a marked effect on South Bristol over the past 20 years. He is now in demand as a speaker at international conferences on cities, the environment and local economies.
