Birds Portchmouth Russum Architects was established in January 1989, when the partners left the office of James Stirling and Michael Wilford to develop their competition winning design for the highly acclaimed Avenue de Chartres Carpark in Chichester.
Since then the practice has moved on to undertake a wide range of projects and have been invited to a number of competitions, many of which the practice has won. BPR’s work has been exhibited throughout the world and was the subject of a major retrospective at the Architektur Museum in Basle. BPR have become known for the their beautiful drawings, original approach and innovative solutions for the built environment.
