Associate Director - 3D Reid
‘Chris Dobson joined the Edinburgh office of 3DReid in September 2006, and has been responsible for the design and delivery of several high profile and complex projects, both new-build and refurbishment. These have included the new Centre of Wellbeing for charitable organisation the Thistle Foundation, 132 Princes Street, an office conversion, in the heart of Edinburgh, and Primark’s flagship store, in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
Although experienced in a wide range of sectors, Chris’ primary focus lies with the development of cultural and community-based projects; two of which, a new concert hall in the heart of Edinburgh, and the extension of the National Museum of Flight Scotland, were recently shortlisted in high profile international competitions.
Chris was shortlisted as ‘Emerging Architect of the Year’ at the RIAS Awards 2017, and was invited by Scottish Futures Trust to sit on its ‘Learning Place of the Future’ Working Group. In addition to his work with 3DReid, he is a Co-Producer of the Architecture Fringe, an annual festival exploring all facets of Scotland’s built environment across a range of discipline, sits on the Cockburn Association’s Urban Design Group and is a committee member for DOK Artist Space, a grassroots arts organisation, based in Leith.’
