Alex Wraight

Alex is a Partner at Allies and Morrison. He trained at the University of Nottingham and joined the practice in 2000, following spells working in Dublin and Malaysia.

Alex has wide experience as an architect, from leading key workplace and residential projects to the practice’s largest cultural and educational project to date. He is a champion for technical excellence in the practice and plays an important role in the day-to-day running of the studio.

As the partner at the helm of the Stratford Waterfront project, Alex leads a multi-disciplinary team on a complex project in the public eye. It has involved several workstreams – the design of individual buildings for four of the world’s leading cultural and educational institutions and a shared public realm as well as an extensive programme of stakeholder engagement.

For Imperial College London, he led the design and delivery of the recently completed Sir Michael Uren Hub, an innovative new biomedical facility on Imperial’s White City Campus. And he has been responsible for our projects at Paddington Central for British Land, delivering Four Kingdom Street while now designing its neighbour, Five Kingdom Street. Alex was also a pivotal member of the team that delivered Bankside 123, the award-winning mixed-use development adjacent to Tate Modern and our studios. Today, he is working on another ambitious project in our neighbourhood: Liberty of Southwark, a future residential, office and retail development for Landsec.

An active member of the British Council of Offices (BCO), Alex sat on the Architecture Group within the BCO’s Technical Affairs Committee that produced the 2009 Guide to Specification. He is a board member for Better Bankside, our local Business Improvement District, sits on Design Review Panels and has been a juror for the NLA and AJ Awards. In addition, Alex is a visiting design tutor at Nottingham University.
