Phil Shotton

  • Architectural Assistant
  • London

Phil joined Populous in early 2016 as a member of the Event Design, Overlay and Planning team, working on the design and preparation of venues around the world to host major international sport and entertainment events.

Phil has always held a love for sport and competition, giving him a platform on which to meet new people and experience contrasting cultures in various venues around the world; from racing in the 400m in front of 46,000 people during the test event for the London Olympic Stadium in 2012; visiting nine host cities during the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil; to being engulfed by the party atmosphere of Rugby Sevens inside a temporary stadium deep in the Dubai desert in 2015. His role at Populous enables Phil to combine his vast experience of sports events of varying scales with his passion for socially inclusive architecture and design.

Phil graduated from the University of Sheffield in 2015 with a BA (Hons) in Architecture. During a break from studies in 2014 Phil undertook a 4 month research project in the Middle East. This research further progressed his understanding of how international sports and entertainment events can transform the built environment of an entire city.

Phil is currently assisting in the design of the 38 venues for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games bid. He has also contributed to overlay designs for a major international event, and the design of two major international football stadiums.
