Profile

Alison Brooks

Description

As one might expect from one of the most sought-after architects, Alison Brooks has had a ‘fantastic year’,working worldwide, winning awards for projects in both Barcelona and New York. Her crowning glory – the Cohen Quadrangle for Exeter College, Oxford – ‘exceeded everyone’s expectations’, she says.

Brooks never underestimates the importance of the little things: ‘It’s fantastic to work at so many different scales, from designing a cherrywood staircase to a major urban neighbourhood.’ In the 22 years since founding her firm, she’s won numerous awards, including Architect of the Year and Housing Architect of the Year 2012, plus several RIBA awards.
