BSc (Hons) Dip Arch RIBA Director Andrew had a distinguished student career at the Bartlett, UCL, including the award of the Sir Andrew Taylor (a British architect and Conservative Party municipal councillor (1850-1937)) prize, before going to MacCormac Jamieson Prichard where he worked on the Fitzwilliam College Chapel and new accomodation for Trinity College Cambridge. Andrew established Patel Taylor with Pankaj Patel in 1989. They quickly gained attention with competition wins for a masterplan for the Antwerp Docks and the French city of Chateauroux, and an RIBA award for the conversion of a stone barn in North Wales into an arts centre and gallery in 1992. In 1994 Andrew was partner-in-charge for competition winning Ayr Citadel masterplan, which took the practice into a new league and secured private funding after a twenty five year hiatus. Current projects include Springfield Hospital in South London which converts a listed NHS hospital into 850 homes, Eastside City Park in Birmingham and the library and students centre for the University of Essex. He is also overseeing the conversion of the listed Stanley Mills complex in Gloucestershire into residential accomodation, Thames View in East London and the award-winning Lowther Children’s Centre in Richmond. His ability has been recognised by prestigious academic and public appointments, including a visiting professorship at the Welsh School of Architecture, and has lectured in Japan, Spain, France, Holland and Ireland. He is also a member of CABE’s National Design Review Panel, the Newham Design Review Panel, and is an assessor for the RIBA and Civic Trust awards.
