Alsop, Will

Alsop, Will
   b. 1947
   Architect
   Alsop has been Principal of Alsop Stormer Architects since 1981. He was educated at the Architectural Association and taught sculpture at St Martin’s College, London. He collaborates with Bruce McLean (on architectural drawings), has worked with Cedric Price, and was formerly in practice with John Lyall. Major projects have been design work on the Cardiff barrage, planning on the rework of the De Lorean Belfast car factory, government buildings in Marseilles and design work on a ferry terminal in Hamburg. As long ago as 1975, Alsop notably defined conceptual architecture at a London ART Net conference as ‘a limitless activity devoid of direction or dogma’. In other words, Alsop felt that the process and not the product was the chief goal of conceptual architecture.
