aLL Design is an international collective of young and established architects and designers, each with broad artistic interests and specialisms. Under the direction of the late Prof. William Alsop, OBE RA, the studio has designed some of the world's most iconic architecture. These landmarks have often increased tourism, encouraged learning and lured people into their community. They include RIBA Worldwide Award winners: the French Government's Headquarters in Marseille - 'Le Grand Bleu'; Ontario College of Art and Design and the RIBA Stirling Prize-winning Peckham Library, London.
We practice to make life better. Our philosophy concerns listening to people and each other, looking keenly at a brief and responding to the site and all those who are involved or connected in some way to the development. aLL endeavours to make people happy and engaged - forging community links in the process of design and absorbing ideas which enable them to evolve unique places for shared experience. The practice pioneers a collaborative approach and strives to be innovator and enricher of life and learning. The late Prof. Alsop was an artist, writer, educator and architect - he actively promoted the artistic contribution to built environments and aLL Design will continue his legacy.
