Royal Institute of British ArchitectsIn 2014, the John Henry Brookes Building was considered by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) to be one of the top buildings to make a great contribution to the evolution of architecture over the past year.

As the architects who delivered Brookes’ new, award-winning building, Design Engine Architects made the design journey from concept to realisation. Richard’s lecture, in conjunction with an exhibition in the Glass Tank exhibition space, explores the design process involved in delivering major architectural projects.

The John Henry Brookes Building, and Design Engine, also won a RIBA national award as well as three regional awards in the RIBA South section.
