Ahead if this weekends NEC The Homebuilding, Renovating and Home Improvement Show 27th to 30th March we speak with Piers Taylor, Chartered Architect, a former Studio master at the Architectural Association, Design Fellow at the University of Cambridge, a founding director at Mitchell Taylor Workshop and a co-presenter of hit BBC2 series The House that £100K Built.
Piers Taylor also founded Invisible Studio an innovative award winning architectural practice. It aims to be a different organisation from a conventional practice. Their work encompasses a number of seminal buildings from ecologically sensitive self builds through to schools, public buildings and large scale urban environments, which have won a plethora of awards and been published widely and internationally. Much of their work is low cost and they believe passionately that design is not a luxury add on, but a process by which the most is extracted from the least through intelligent and clever thinking. They have particular expertise with timber, and have close relationships with the UK’s leading timber engineers and scientists.
