We are inviting those who recognise the value of great design in our communities or just love good design to make a date to join us for a glass of wine with friends and discuss the importance of inspirational architecture with an architect who creates it.

The first to win the UK's three most prestigious awards for architecture; the Stirling prize with FCB and MLA (2008), the Manser Medal (2007) and the Stephen Lawrence Prize (2006), many people will already know Alison Brooks for her work at the Stirling Prize-winning development at Accordia in Cambridge and Newhall in Harlow.
