Alison Brooks, founder of Alison Brooks Architects, is the Architects’ Journal architect of the year, and was the recent winner of the Women in Architecture award. Her studio completed the Quarterhouse performing arts centre in Folkestone in 2009, and was shortlisted to design a cultural quarter at the London 2012 Olympic Park that would include an outpost of the Sadler’s Wells Theatre.

Jacob Kurek is a partner at Danish practice Henning Larsen, and leads the studio’s international projects. Henning Larsen’s Harpa concert building in Reykjavik, a collaboration with artist Olafur Eliasson, won the Mies van der Rohe Award in 2013.
