Description

Marking the completion of three major projects this year, Amanda Levete explores the projects, achievements and ethos of one of the UK’s leading architectural firms, AL_A.

Amanda Levete is a RIBA Stirling Prize winning architect and founder and principal of AL_A, an international award-winning design and architecture studio. Since its formation in 2009, AL_A has refined an intuitive and strategic approach to design that has radicalised clients and briefs, led to a diverse range of concepts for cultural, retail and commercial schemes around the world. Recent commissions include the highly anticipated expansion of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the remodelling of Galeries Lafayette Haussmann in Paris, a 1.5 million sq ft luxury shopping mall and hotel in Bangkok on the former grounds of the British Embassy, a new centre for the cancer care charity Maggie’s in Southampton, a 13-hectare media campus for Sky, the Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology in Lisbon commissioned by Energias De Portugal (EDP), one of the world’s foremost energy companies, and MPavilion 2015 in Melbourne.
