LFA Architecture Masters Podcast
CZWG partner Piers Gough talks with Owen Wainhouse as a guest on the latest episode of Architecture Masters, the podcast from the London Festival of Architecture.
They discuss how the practice made a name for themselves and its evolution from university basement beginnings at the Architectural Association to our studio space in central Clerkenwell today.
“There are still ten partners. A nice top-heavy office you know - when you've got sixty people to have ten partners is quite a lot. But that reflects our office; there’s not much in the way of people leaving. It's not hugely hierarchical [here]. We all sit out together in one room. We're all in one space. It's like teams. Mini teams.”
In 2018 six of CZWG’s early works were listed by Historic England for their significance to the UK’s postmodernist movement. Piers also talks about The Green Bridge at Mile End Park and more recently the inverted pyramid of Canada Water Library in Southwark.
