Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is a unique UK based practice whose contemporary work prominently affects cityscapes, the majority around the UK. Their focus is on larger complex constructions for community benefits through concentration of topics such as growing and fractured cities, climate change, the development of education and its impact on localism.
The 38 year old practice currently employs over 200 staff, focusing on education, master planning, housing and urban design. Some of their projects include the Accordia housing scheme in Cambridge for which they won the Stirling prize, Broadcasting place which is a mixed use development that includes a new Baptist church in Leeds, Manchester School of Art and the new Ulster University in Belfast.
The Belfast office recently organised a series of events entitled ‘What’s the big idea?’ which focused on examples of how cities, neighbourhoods and business have been transformed by design focused projects.
For this year’s Open House festival, FCBStudios, will once again host an ‘Open Office’ lunchtime talk showcasing the working practices behind the buildings.
