Ken Shuttleworth:
A Journey of Design and Discovery


Wednesday, August 17, 2016

Time: 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.


Ainsworth Lecture Theatre,
Kensington Campus,
University of UNSW


CTBUH Sydney City Committee and UNSW Built Environment


World-renowned architect Ken Shuttleworth has attracted acclaim and controversy in equal measure throughout his 40-year career. Never one to design “ordinary” buildings, Shuttleworth has worked on many ground-breaking projects, including, the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Headquarters and “The Gherkin” in London while at Foster + Partners. Since establishing Make Architects 12 years ago, the studio has grown to 150 employees and built a portfolio of award-winning projects that continue to challenge the norm, including 5 Broadgate in London, The Temple House in Chengdu, and Facebook’s UK headquarters.

In this lecture, Shuttleworth will reveal what inspires and motivates him; the ethos behind employee-owned Make Architects; and how to design buildings which will be as functional and relevant in 20 years’ time as they are now.

Cheese and wine will be served at the Red Centre Gallery at the end of the lecture.
