Alistair Brierley

Project Director at Scott Brownrigg

View presenter info

Alistair is a Project Director within Scott Brownrigg’s Education sector. He has a natural curiosity for ‘unlocking’ the complex three dimensional jigsaw of a wide range of building typologies. Resolving both plan and section in terms of meaningful adjacencies, and coding these with an appropriate architectural language. Coupling the ‘function’ and ‘form’ of a building to vernacular traditions, cultural references, intrinsic sociological values and technological advance has informed all Alistair’s projects over the last 35 years. From the intimate spaces of the Donmar Theatre in Covent Garden, through to the recently completed Istanbul Airport and the high rise SHaW Futures Academy in London, Alistair excels at distilling and interpreting a brief, thus enabling client groups and stakeholders to imagine and capture their vision right from the start of the design process.
