Ken Shuttleworth | Make Architects
Wednesday, 17 August 2016 - 6pm | UNSW Ainsworth G03 Theatre, Ground Floor, Ainsworth Building
UNSW Built Environment and CTBUH are pleased to present - Ken Shuttleworth: A journey of design and discovery.
World-renowned architect Ken Shuttleworth has attracted acclaim and controversy in equal measure throughout his 40-year career. Never one to design ‘ordinary’ buildings, Ken has worked on many ground-breaking projects, including the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank headquarters and ‘The Gherkin’ in London while at Foster + Partners.
Since establishing Make 12 years ago, the studio has grown to 150 employees and built a portfolio of award-winning projects that continue to challenge the norm, including 5 Broadgate in London, The Temple House in Chengdu and Facebook’s UK headquarters.
In this lecture, Ken will reveal what inspires and motivates him; the ethos behind employee-owned Make; and how to design buildings which will be as functional and relevant in 20 years’ time as they are now.
