London School of Architecture Show and Tell: Andy Groarke and Graham Haworth

Known for the craft and beauty of their work, Andy Groarke and Graham Haworth will discuss how they develop their architecture with Deborah Saunt and Maria Smith at the London School of Architecture’s monthly Show and Tell Social.

In the London architectural scene, the architecture of Haworth Tompkins and Carmody Groarke stands out for its elegance and material sensibility. Though of different generations – Carmody Groarke was founded 15 years after Haworth Tompkins – both practices have an output that is refined, inventive and approachable.

Through a presentation of selected projects, Graham Haworth and Andy Groarke will explore how they develop the qualities of form, material and light in their design process. Following the talk, Maria Smith will join a panel discussion chaired by Deborah Saunt.
