Foster and Partners, London

 

I worked at Fosters in the mid 90's. This was the era before the widespread use of Computer Aided Design (CAD) and we drew all the detailed design information for Canary Wharf Underground Station - in my opinion one of the last great Foster buildings - in ink on tracing paper, scratching out any mistakes with a razor blade. By the end of my time at Fosters the whole office had swiched over to CAD. I also worked on North Greenwich Transport Interchange (another Jubilee Line Extension project) and a new Social Studies Faculty building for Oxford University.

FCBA were, and still are, known for their expertise in environmental design and the two main projects I worked on were perhaps not typical of their output at the time: an extension to the Royal Air Force Museum in Hendon and the Museum of the Cold War in Cosford, Wolverhampton.

 

The latter I was involved with from conceptual sketch through to construction. It won numerous awards from the RIBA, the British Construction Industry and the Civic Trust.

Gillespie Yunnie Architects, Devon

 

I worked on a wide range of projects at GYA, many involving the re-use of historically significant buildings such as the Grade 2* listed Oldway Mansion in Paignton and the Grade 1 listed Royal William Yard in Plymouth. I also worked on various housing projects for private clients as well as large scale developments for the likes of Linden Homes at Graylingwell in Chichester.
