Morgan BSc(Hons), MA, CIAT, CIOB
Morgan is a Founding Partner of MOAT Studio and researcher of alternative perspectives for the future of the industry. Graduating with a Bachelor of Science with Honours in Architectural Design & Technology from Cardiff Metropolitan University’s School of Art & Design in 2012, he undertook Initial Teacher Training in Secondary Education. Morgan is qualified as an Outstanding teacher of Design & Technology, specialising in Engineering, Technical and Computer Aided Design & Manufacture. Morgan has worked in secondary schools and sixth form centres, mainly in areas of significant social deprivation, to develop and inspire the next generation of designers and manufacturers. A challenging job, this hasn’t stopped Morgan from achieving his career aspirations of educational management, having secured a Head of Design & Technology position in his second year, in one of the UK’s top performing schools. By his third year he completed his MA in Education.
In March of 2016 Morgan was identified and approached to make significant improvements to a group of qualifications as a Head of Faculty in a school where students were under-performing. In just his first term the faculty was transformed and continued to make outstanding progress with exceptional praise from senior leaders in education and the local community.
In October of 2016 Morgan and Owen, also a graduate of Cardiff Metropolitan University’s School of Art & Design, formed MOAT Studio which combined their collective experience and passion for architecture, in particular Morgan’s experience in education. After concluding that the business would require full-time commitment Morgan relocated to South Wales, incorporating Morgan Owen LLP with Martin, trading as MOAT Studio.
Morgan has extensive experience in leading various high profile projects, managing teams and delivering to a wide range of audiences, with his unique and inspirational formula for success. He combines business strategy with leading MOAT Studio’s education-based projects.
A founder and integral part of the leadership team at MOAT Studio, Morgan is passionate about building solid and long-lasting relationships with our clients through professional and carefully considered practice with a focus on achieving consistent client satisfaction.
