Congratulations to John Riley, winner of our Festive CGI Competition

The winner of our Festive CGI Competition has been announced – congratulations to John Riley from our Manchester studio!

2020 has been a challenging year, but the festive season brings a much-needed opportunity to celebrate! Our challenge to everyone at our international studios was to take a Chapman Taylor project or projects and create a festive-themed and jolly CGI for it, no matter what their religion or local customs are.

We received a high standard of entries, all demonstrating great talent and a sense of fun!

Following a difficult judging process, our panel decided that John’s entry, “The 12 Days of Christmas”, excelled in its scope and execution, showing 12 Chapman Taylor projects in the form of a Christmas tree, each image having been made suitably seasonal.

As the winner, John receives an appropriately festive hamper.

Congratulations to John, and well done to everyone who took part in the competition on a great display of creativity and cheer.



John joined Chapman Taylor’s core Feasibility team in 2018 as a Senior Architect based in our Manchester studio.

Specialising in the concept design stage of residential projects and urban masterplans, John’s creativity and sketching abilities make him a key asset on several of the studio’s major projects, such as our Anchorage Gateway residential development.

Prior to joining Chapman Taylor, John was the Associate architect for the multi-award-winning Timekeeper’s Square in Salford, comprising 33 new townhouses in the Adelphi Bexley Square conservation area, as well as the Stagecoach development in Moss Side and the Louisa Street Development in Openshaw.
