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 has been published in the Architects’ Journal, Superposition Magazine and the Architectural Review, and has recently featured in At Home in London: The Mansion Block, a book-length study co-published by the Architecture Foundation and MACK.   

Scaffold is an ongoing interview project that maps the shifting contours of contemporary architecture. The project began independently in 2018, and became a part of the Architecture Foundation’s audio programme in 2021. With over 100 conversations recorded to date, it features emerging and established voices in the fields of architecture, art and design, and has been celebrated by Dezeen as one of the “best pieces of new architectural media.” 

At the RCA Matthew teaches an M.Arch design studio with Cathy Hawley focused on the transformation of existing buildings and urban surfaces, with an interest in establishing new frameworks of pleasure and comfort in the context of climate breakdown. He has previously taught undergraduate and masters 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.
