Mike Wells Participates in Howard Tompkins Away Day


Director Mike Wells participated as panellist and workshop facilitator at the second away day of the Stirling Prize winning architectural practice, Howard Tompkins. The aim of the away day was to discuss practice achievements and further shape the agenda and direction of the practice to address the major issues and challenges of the current era. The day was chaired by the Sustainability editor of the Architects' Journal Hattie Hartman and facilitated and organised by Diana Dina HT's head of Sustainability and Regenerative Design. It was a very good and stimulating day with an amazing group of people together for the first time en masse since lockdown.
