Splitsville for Foreign Office Architects

The UK based design practice Foreign Office Architects, best known for their design of the Yokohama International Port Terminal, is being dissolved because its husband and wife cofounders, Alejandro Zaero-Polo and Farshid Moussavi are splitting up after 10 years of marriage. The two, who met at the Office for Metropolitan Architect, established the award winning practice in 1995. Among its current projects are the Birmingham New Street Station for Network Rail, Ravensbourne College of Design and Communication in London, and commissions in Europe, Korea and Malaysia. The practice, which currently employs 30 people, is expected to reorganise as two separate offices once the current commissions are concluded.
