Will Alsop 1947- 2018

Monday 14 May 2018

Sad news today as we learn of Will Alsop’s death, one of architecture’s most colourful characters.

Monday Morning brought with it the sad news that architecture has lost one of its most colourful characters. Will Alsop, the undisputed Enfant Terrible of architecture has died at the age of 70 after a short illness.

We have had the privilege of interviewing Will on many occasions. Most recently, in the summer of 2015 Michael Hammond met Will at his Battersea Beach, almost in the shadow of Foster’s HQ where, under the Heathrow flightpath, appropriately accompanied by construction noises of power-drills and adjacent scaffolding erection, he talks candidly about his life, his challenges and successes.
