Matthew Blunderfield is a photographer and host of the podcast Scaffold.

He teaches architecture at the Royal College of Art, and is a producer at The Architecture Foundation.



Matthew’s photography seeks the exotic within the arena of daily life. As an architect he also brings an interest in construction, materiality and composition to his work.

Scaffold features interviews with emerging and established voices in the fields of architecture, art and design. It is supported by the Architecture Foundation and has been celebrated by Dezeen as one of the “best pieces of new architectural media.” 

At the RCA Matthew teaches a masters level studio with Adrea Zanderigo focused on the adaptive reuse of 1980’s shopping malls and office buildings. He has previously taught undergraduate and masters degree studios at the Kingston School of Art. 

Born and raised in Vancouver, Matthew studied English Literature at the University of British Columbia and Architecture at the University of Toronto, before completing his RIBA Part III qualification from the Bartlett, UCL. He lives in London.
