Architect Visit: Burd Haward in London

June 7, 2010

Catherine Burd and Buddy Haward studied architecture together in the eighties, then each went their own way to work with several established British architects. In 1998, they set up Burd Haward Architects, currently based in London’s Primrose Hill neighborhood. Their work encompasses a wide range of projects, including schools, art buildings, commercial developments, and residential housing. Their designs have gained critical acclaim for their conceptual clarity, refreshing simplicity, and innovative use of materials (Burd Haward’s 2009 Forge Arts and Cafe Caponata building recently won the 2010 Riba Winner Award). To see more of the firm’s work, go to Burd Haward Architects.
