'A is for Architecture' podcast

September 2023

In the latest episode of the podcast 'A is for Architecture', Simon Henley talks to Ambrose Gillick about "Beneficial Building", his work as a designer, researcher, maker and teacher, and the work of Henley Halebrown.

A is for Architecture is an ongoing project, providing original material and resources, and additional sources, to support students and fans of architecture in their work, research, thinking, studies and entertainment. At the heart of it is a podcast, through which ideas, artefacts and people will be discussed with leading scholars, designers, artists, teachers and architects. 

Ambrose says: "Henley Halebrown are increasingly significant players in the production of new urban housing, particularly in London, where their work has grown in stature and reputation. This year, their Taylor & Chatto Courts and Wilmott Court, Frampton Park Estate has been shortlisted for the RIBA Neave Brown Award for Housing, and the Hackney New Primary School and 333 Kingsland Road won The International Architecture Award 2023. Previous work includes a litany of acclaimed schemes, including Chadwick Hall student housing in Roehampton which was nominated for the Stirling Prize in 2018."
