With a focus on the development and culture of cities and the role of public space, much of Gavin’s work involves interventions in sensitive sites and the engagement between architecture and the public realm. Gavin has extensive experience in higher education, science and research and a particular interest in the interrelationship of these disciplines and urban life. As a Principal Director at Stanton Williams, he has led a number of the practice’s high-profile projects including the Stirling Prize winning Sainsbury Laboratory for the University of Cambridge. Recent projects include the expansion of Cambridge Judge Business School, key worker housing for the University of Cambridge, and the Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London. Gavin is currently responsible for the design of a new 33,500sqm academic facility within the first phase of the UCL East masterplan within the new Cultural and Education District in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London.
