We are very analytical and don’t bring pre- conceived ideas to the table. We get chosen because we bring freshness and innovation to the process. The overriding unifying feature is the search for the clear, elegant solution.” As Design Director, Jason Flanagan has been involved in all of Flanagan Lawrence’s residential projects. These vary from a residentially led mixed- use scheme in Southwark including private apartments, affordable housing, and a homeless shelter; to indi- vidual houses in a village in Cornwall; to high-end residential projects for Candy and Candy, Sellar, and the Grosvenor Estate in London. Flanagan also has an extensive track record of working on public buildings for the performing arts, leading the team on the newly completed, competition-winning scheme for the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama in Cardiff comprising a concert hall, theatre, and gallery space. Flanagan studied architecture at the Bartlett School of Architecture at London University and at the Royal College of Art. During his studies, he worked for Conran Roche Ltd and Armstrong Associates. He joined Foster + Partners in 1991 and was made Partner at Foster + Partners in 2004. Flanagan joined Flanagan Lawrence in 2006 and has a special interest in acoustics and sound. Amongst his most innovative projects is Soundforms, the first ever mobile acoustic shell with the capacity for a full orchestra. Shotcrete • Winter 2015 19
