Alison Brooks is the Founder and Creative Director of Alison Brooks Architects London, is one of the UK’s most highly awarded and internationally acclaimed architects. With built works encompassing urban design and housing, private houses, public buildings for the arts and higher education, she is the only UK architect to have received the profession’s three most prestigious awards: the RIBA Stirling Prize, Manser Medal (twice) and Stephen Lawrence Prize. She is committed to generous, inclusive city-building and brings a uniquely sculptural design language to her work, such as the recently completed Cohen Quadrangle for Exeter College, Oxford. Landmark urban projects include Ely Court, London, the Stirling-prize-winning Accordia, Cambridge and Cadence in King’s Cross. Her public and education buildings include Folkestone’s Quarterhouse Performing Arts Centre and the ‘Smile’ pavilion for the 2017 London Design Festival. Private houses continue to serve as a focussed platform for the practice’s design research.
