Carl Turner Architects , Director
Carl is Founding Director of Carl Turner Architects and is a self confessed “maker at heart”. His love of craft permeates his architectural design and often leads to innovative new uses for materials and processes.
Carl is directly involved in all aspects of the running of his studio and takes a hands-on approach to all of the projects that come into the office. Starting with his very own Slip House in Brixton, which went on to win the prestigious Manser Medal, the practice has gone on to create projects both large and small for a variety of clients including The Design Council, The British Council, MUDE Museum of Design & Fashion, Lisbon and are currently working on urban renewal projects with both Lambeth and Southwark Councils.
Carl lectures widely in the UK and overseas and is often asked to sit on jury and award panels. He is a member of the Southwark Design Review Panel and a fellow of the RSA. Carl was elected as National and London Council Member for the RIBA in 2014.
Carl graduated from the Royal College of Art and was an inaugural Research Associate of the Helen Hamlyn Research Centre.
