About this talk

Running time: 44 minutes

Simon Allford and his partners (AHMM) are one of the youngest practices in Britain to become well known. They have won innumerable competitions and awards, and have been widely featured on TV, radio and in the press. They met as students at the Bartlett School of Architecture in 1983 and have remained together ever since, setting up in practice in London in 1989. As such, they have evolved a collaborative method of working, now shared with their 40-strong staff.

Their work has ranged from exhibitions to private houses, as well as public housing, schools, clubs, a medical centre, offices and the Walsall bus station.

In this recording, Allford talks about the ideas behind each design and how it develops, as well as about how to give a client better value, not necessarily only through cost but also quality of return in terms of space, maintenance and delight.
