Faces of British Architecture\

Roger Hawkins' portrait is featured in the Faces of British Architecture, an exhibition by photographer Timothy Soar commissioned by Icopal at the Building Centre, London from 9th January - 29th February 2012.

Roger Hawkins worked in the USA and at Rock Townsend before forming Hawkins\Brown with Russell Brown in 1988. The practice, which delights in being difficult to pigeon-hole, enjoys an eclectic workload ranging from sensitive arts-based projects in sensitive rural locations such as the Sheep Field Barn Gallery at the Henry Moore Foundation in Hertfordshire and vast infrastructure projects such as the regeneration of Stratford Regional Station.

Hawkins has spearheaded the practice’s education work including numerous masterplans, campuses and buildings for schools and universities across the UK. He is the director in charge of the redevelopment of Tottenham Court Road station and plaza and has led on several projects in the arts and cultural sectors including The Corby Cube, a civic centre in Northamptonshire, which he describes as ‘a new paradigm for civic buildings in an age of austerity’.

The practice is proud of its reputation as a great place to work, but perhaps even prouder of its innovative architecture proclaiming ‘The biggest motivator is great work’.
