Roger Hawkins, Founding Partner, Hawkins\Brown
Roger Hawkins founded Hawkins\Brown with Russell Brown in 1988 and is recognised as one of the leading architects in the UK. A firm believer that good architecture needs to address a social agenda, he is always keen to promote user needs and aspirations. His practice has featured in these pages on several occasions – the double-fronted 53 Great Suffolk Street and the UCL Bartlett site at Here East to name a few, but let us not forget The Gantry, with its modular timber panel studios, also at Here East. Speaking of which, the latter – also by Hawkins\Brown – was named AJ100 Building Of The Year in June 2018.
