Founded in 2005 with a single photo, Arkhitekton is a website by Matt Todd that provides intermittent and idiosyncratic commentary on architecture, design, landscape and occasionally, technology.

I’m a registered architect (and landscape architect) with over 25 years professional experience, particularly in education and public buildings. I’ve held senior roles at highly-awarded design practices including FJMT (Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp), Hassell, John Wardle Architects, and I was at Denton Corker Marshall for most of my early career.

Rather than provide a constant stream of architecture news, of which there are plenty of examples, Arkhitekton is a personal site that’s updated on quite a relaxed schedule (ie. when I happen to have some time) about things that interest me on design, to draw attention to interesting websites that might otherwise get overlooked, or sometimes versions of my conference presentations.

About the Name

Admittedly “arkhitekton” is a bit of a mouthful but the term “architect” is derived from the Greek word “arkhitekton”, where “arkhi” means master (or chief) and “tekton” is builder so it seemed appropriate. Now you know.
