Zaha Hadid, founding partner of Zaha Hadid Architects, was awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2004 and is internationally known for her built, theoretical and academic work. Each of her dynamic and innovative projects builds on over thirty years of revolutionary experimentation and research in the interrelated fields of urbanism, architecture and design.
Working with senior office partner Patrik Schumacher, Hadid’s interest is in the rigorous interface between architecture, landscape, and geology as the practice integrates natural topography and human-made systems that lead to experimentation with cutting-edge technologies. Such a process often results in unexpected and dynamic architectural forms.

Currently, the practice is working on a multitude of projects including; the KAPSARC Research Centre in Riyadh, the Aquatics Centre for the London 2012 Olympic Games, High-Speed Train Stations in Naples and Durango, the CMA CGM Head Office tower in Marseille and urban master-plans in Cairo, Istanbul, China, Singapore and the Middle East.

BUILD IT MAGAZINE MARCH 2008
We are a small enthusiastic practice committed to creating exciting contemporary buildings that respond well to their context. Since the establishment of the practice in 1997 we have been involved in a large number of projects of varying types, providing partial or full services as required.
We are also concerned with a building's relationship to its garden, adjacent landscape or streetscape, and are interested in the design of these.
We are a design-led architecture practice based in London and Shenzhen, China, with a specialist expertise in high-end residential. Our extensive portfolio based on over 30 years in practice includes a diverse spectrum of work ranging from the completion of award-winning multiple unit residential and commercial projects and the masterplanning of entire neighbourhoods, to the creation of stunning bespoke residences within prime locations in the UK, Russia, Europe, China and the Caribbean.
We understand fully the varied demands and requirements of developers as well as owner occupiers in a highly specialised field, and our partner led approach ensures quality is upheld at all stages. Our experience of market drivers, together with the level of refinement and attention to detail we pride ourselves upon enable us to meet the exacting requirements of our clients both locally and internationally.

Over 30 years Nicholas Hare Architects have built a balanced portfolio of projects. Our work includes buildings for the arts, education, medicine, research and different kinds of workplaces. This balance is important to us as it both enables us to widen our experience and ensure a fresh approach to all design challenges. The scale of projects ranges from small primary school adaptions to major commercial office developments. Our projects often embrace project management, urban design and masterplanning as well as architectural design as we aim to provide a comprehensive service that ensures all of our client’s aims are realised - including programme and cost targets.
We enjoy working collaboratively generating ideas that are inspired by the unique context of the site and our client’s aspirations that we analyse and evaluate together. The emerging designs are always fresh, responsive and thoroughly interrogated. It also means that our projects are quite different although guided by some consistent values and principles. Chief amongst these is responsibility towards the environment which extends from helping to create sustainable communities to challenging targets for carbon reduction. We like to create buildings and spaces that are enjoyable and delightful to use and a sustainable approach with its focus on natural light and the careful selection of materials is fundamental to this aim.
We are committed to collaboration in our work with other consultants and constructors too as we believe teamwork and the development of fully integrated designs are the key to the successful delivery of projects. In our own office, dedicated teams are formed for each project but ideas shared across the studio informally and through a regular programme of peer reviews and design debates which enhances awareness of new technologies and encourages innovation.
Our work has received wide recognition through a variety of awards and publications. Some of these celebrate our efficient delivery of projects as well as the quality of design. Today, the practice numbers over 50 people and continues to grow organically.

Committed to spatial practice as a transformative process, Urban Projects Bureau engages in pioneering work that expands the possibilities of design innovation, pushing the boundaries of what architecture and urbanism can do and be.
Urban Projects Bureau intervenes in processes of social, political and urban change through research, teaching, spatial strategy and design. Our approach is strategic in nature and specific in focus: we believe in constructing spaces as a way of generating change. We have a breadth of experience and knowledge in architecture and urbanism, and have undertaken projects in the UK, Europe, Asia, South America and South Africa, and have worked with leading international political agencies and cultural institutions.
Our studio is structured into three main specialism’s: UPB Projects, UPB Research, and UPB Actions, which work independently and collaboratively as part of our combined practice. We work across a range of scales and sectors, and apply our analytical thinking and design expertise to public and private projects of varying sizes and types – from social housing to exhibitions and interiors, from regional development strategies to the design of civic spaces. Key to our work is an interest in the ways in which spaces are inhabited and used, and a commitment to the public realm as a place of social exchange and political activity.
Urban Projects Bureau work with urban processes that shape the city and its institutions, and operate as a think tank to develop critical frameworks through which to re-think existing challenges and envision alternative urban models. Extending the potential of urbanism as a discipline, we collaborate with government bodies, NGO’s, social agencies, and public organisations to apply design-thinking to complex urban situations, political and institutional affairs. UPB was selected to exhibit in the British Pavilion in the 13th Venice Architecture Biennale 2012, and was included in the Guardian portrait of key players in British Architecture 2012.
