Having tirelessly campaigned several years ago for ‘the death of the glass box’ and the overuse of glass to provoke debate in the profession about the need to design more energy-efficient buildings, Ken Shuttleworth will explain how Make’s approach has since evolved to embrace a more holistic approach to the whole building and its environmental performance. Considering Make’s experience at the forefront of design, he will explore how the concept of ‘taming the sun’ and rediscovering shade opens up new possibilities for a sustainable low carbon architectural language. A “must attend” talk by Ken Shuttleworth, who as a partner of Foster & Partners created some of the world’s most iconic buildings such as Swiss Re (Gerkin) London, City Hall London, HSBC Hong Kong, Commerzbank, Frankfurt, Hong Kong Int. Airport, Millenium Bridge, London & Wembley Stadium, London. As the founder of make architects, ‘Ken the Pen’ has led an award-winning international architectural practice with a reputation for design excellence. AJ100 Awards Winner – Practice of the Year 2014 and also shortlisted in The Sunday Times Best Small Companies To Work For. Ken Shuttleworth worked at Foster for a very very long time, in the late 80’s for the HongKong and Shanghai bank in China, and then later for docklands (Canary Wharf design competition) and later again for the iconic gherkin building in london. The event is on 29.9.2014 and we hope the turn out will be amazing and so the lecture. Having seen kens many glass and concrete buildings and how ken prepared the sketches this is a truly an event not to be missed and also considering ken is one of britains top brains and MAKE is one the most respectable and desirable architectural practice in England. Shuttleworth became a partner at Foster and Partners where he worked on some of the world’s most iconic buildings. He joined the practice in 1977, moving to Hong Kong in 1979 to oversee the design and construction of The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation’s headquarters. Returning to the UK in 1986, he proceeded to build up a remarkable portfolio of experience including the Carré d’Art in Nîmes, the ITN building in London, Cranfield University Library, Hong Kong’s Chek Lap Kok airport, the Al Faisaliah development in Riyadh, London’s Millennium Bridge, 30 St Mary Axe (‘The Gherkin’) and City Hall.
