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

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



Matthew’s photography foregrounds architecture’s relation to the habitual, and seeks a representation of the built environment that reveals 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 one of the “best pieces of new architectural media.” 

At the Kingston School of Art Matthew teaches a third year studio with David Owen exploring the cross-cultural and environmental dimensions of Minimalism. At the RCA he teaches a masters level studio with Adrea Zanderigo focused on the adaptive reuse of 1980’s shopping malls and office buildings. 

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.
