Bennetts Associates: Five Insights is a collection of essays authored by architects at all levels within the practice. It explores how the practice works and what is important to them, capturing their experiences of being an architect. The essays by 18 different contributors, from a Part 1 student to job architects and directors, are followed by ten case studies of recent projects. The projects considered extend from the soon to be completed Midland Goods Shed at King’s Cross, London, to award-winning projects such as the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and a major new facility for Jaguar Land Rover.
Bennetts Associates was awarded Practice of the Year at the Building Awards 2016 and is shortlisted in the Public Building Architect of the Year category for the BD Architect of the Year Awards 2017. The practice recently became employee-owned and is celebrating its thirtieth anniversary this year. The publication of Five Insights marks the first in a series of thirty events throughout the year, to celebrate 30 years in practice.
