Our first event for 2020, was a fascinating and riveting, sold out talk, by Fergus Feilden of Feilden Fowles Architects. Fergus founded Feilden Fowles with Edmund Fowles in 2010. Their practice is shortlisted for the Stirling Prize, has won numerous RIBA and Civic Trust awards and was named BD Young Architect of the Year 2016.
Fergus talked about their unique portfolio, design ethos and challenges. The work showcased was materially rich, diverse and non-stylistic. Their practice is particularly interested in working on sensitive sites and unlocking complex briefs.
Currently their practice is working with high profile clients across the country including The National Trust, TfL and Carlisle Cathedral. Fergus is a critic at a number of universities, a panel member of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park Quality Review Panel and an RIBA Awards judge. Fergus recently led on the design of the Weston, a new gallery and visitor centre at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, which won RIBA Yorkshire Building of the Year, an RIBA National Award and is shortlisted for the Stirling Prize 2019.
The event was conducted in collaboration with University of Gloucestershire
