About Speaker

Simon Allford is a founding director of Allford Hall Monaghan Morris. He leads a studio of two hundred architects working around the world on the design and construction of projects that reflect his belief that outstanding architecture must last through time and accommodate different uses to those that called it into being, whilst offering an extraordinary and delightful backdrop to the theatre of everyday life.

Simon works on a wide range of scales and typologies. Notable projects include the Angel, Tea and Yellow Buildings as well as Adelaide Wharf, the Saatchi Gallery and Chobham Academy. He recently completed White Collar Factory on Old Street, offices for Google and YouTube at Pancras Square, a tower at 240 Blackfriars, three mixed use projects on Regent Street for the Crown Estate, and an academic building for the University of Amsterdam. He is currently working on projects around the UK, in Europe, the US and India.

Simon is a frequent teacher, judge of major awards and competitions, a writer, and critic. He is currently a visiting professor at the GSD Harvard, and a Trustee of the London School of Architecture and Chickenshed Theatres Trust. Simon is a former chair of the Architecture Foundation and will assume the Presidency of RIBA from 1 September 2021.

Event text

On May 6, 2021, we virtually traveled to the UK, where we had the honor to have architect Simon Allford participate together with Catrina Stewart.

This event was part of our Virtual World Tour 20/21, an event series touring a selection of countries around the world to meet some of the most influential architects of our time and get to know them on a personal level.
