practice has academic connections and through these we are able to work with
some of the brightest emerging designers in London. The firmÕs work includes
social housing in Europe and Japan, exhibition structures and museum and gallery
spaces. The practice has won prizes in several competitions, including the Living
Sites Competition, Salford Crescent, Master Planning and Landscape Competition
and was short listed for the International Congress Centre in Rome. The work
of the firm has been extensively published, both nationally and internationally.
Recently, the practice has completed a large, low cost social housing development
in central Japan which involved an international group of four female-led architectural
practices. Each was asked to re-define and re-design highly economic units that
were appropriate for families in the 21st century. Unusually, the project encouraged
design to be developed within a wide cultural context and interpreted through
four female designers. The practice worked together with the artists Aiko Miwoake
and Amy Fuzawa and the land artist, Martha Schwartz. All projects in the UK are
taken through to practical completion and those not in the U.K. have been supervised
on site by a collaborative architectural partner.
