Episode Info:

On this week’s Architecture Masters at Home we’re joined by Roger Hawkins, co-founder of Hawkins\Brown.

Russel Brown and Roger Hawkins founded the firm in 1988 after having worked together at Rock Townsend in the 1980s.

The two partners started the firm with an initial determination, as they saw it, not to get trapped working on smaller residential projects.

The strategy paid off. The firm is now one of the ten largest architecture practices in the UK according to the AJ100 list, and they continue to work on large scale projects – including three key stations for London’s huge Crossrail project.

The firm is also working on the Thames Tideway – now one of Britain’s biggest infrastructure projects –  to modernise the 150-year old Bazalgette-designed network of underground sewers.

When London’s original sewerage system was developed, it changed the look and character of the city with the creation of the Chelsea, Victoria and Albert Embankments.

In a similar way, the Tideway scheme will create new areas of public realm along the foreshore of the River Thames – with Hawkins\Brown leading the design of these new public spaces.
