Architecture Masters

Peter Clegg and Keith Bradley, Partners at FCBStudios are the subjects of the latest episode of Architecture Masters, the podcast from the London Festival of Architecture. They talk about ethics, environmentalism, awards and the importance of sharing a meal together.

In 1978 Peter Clegg and Richard Feilden founded their practice as Feilden Clegg Design in Bath in the West of England. Keith Bradley subsequently joined the practice in 1987.  

It wasn’t until 1998 – some 20 years after their founding – that the practice opened a London studio – where they now employ around 80 people. More recently the practice has opened studios in Belfast, Manchester and Edinburgh and still has one of its main studios in Bath. 

The practice has long been recognised for its environmental commitment and specialism in low carbon design with projects including Greenpeace’s UK Headquarters, finished in 1991 and the National Trust’s HQ in 2006.

The practice won the RIBA Stirling Prize in 2008 for Acordia a housing development just outside Cambridge, won with Alison Brooks and Maccreanor Lavington. It was the first housing project to win the Stirling Prize. 

As well as their commitment to low carbon design the practice has long been commended for their wider social and ethical commitments.
