Following group exhibitions in the V&A, the Royal Academy, Santiago de Compostela and Barcelona, Amin Taha Architects will present their debut solo show at the dreamspace gallery, 1-3 Dufferin Street, London between 10th March and 18th April 2008. Now worthy of an exhibition of their own, Amin Taha Architects is arguably one of the most up and coming design practices in London. Since it was established in 2003 it has completed the Gazzano House on Farringdon Road, the eye-catching Cor-Ten residential building next to the Guardian/Observer headquarters which was shortlisted for two awards and has won a competition for a new family house on the Thames in Henley, receiving international acclaim. The exhibition, supported by Gleeds, will introduce unseen competition entries, models and recent projects completed in 2007. Delwar Hossain, Director of dreamspace says, "Architecture is more than just the construction of buildings, it is the optimism of the spirit. In the ever changing landscape of London, there are few people that have dedicated their entire young practices’ existence to such a simple but spiritual journey. We first saw this in the work of Amin Taha Architects, in his Cor-Ten steel building on Farringdon Road. This was a project on a shoe-string budget which fitted into its urban context yet made a statement of significant differentiation to its neighbours. A contradiction executed masterfully".
