About the speaker

Among numerous prestigious accolades for a multitude of projects, Will Alsop has been awarded the RIBA Stirling Prize and the first RIBA World Award.

His practice is founded principally to 'make life better'. The philosophy extends from the design of individual buildings to embrace broader principles of urbanism and city development and he uses painting, writing and 'playing' to further understanding of design.

Will's work encompasses all sectors of architecture including urban design and planning. His studio practice also incorporates painting and product design.

He is visiting Professor of TU Vienna and Professor of Architecture at Canterbury School of Architecture, UCA.
