 In the second of two special evenings, Architecture on Stage presents four of Britain's best emerging practices.

Hesselbrand Established by Martin Brandsdal, Magnus Casselbrant and Jesper Henriksson in 2014, Hesselbrand maintains offices in London and Oslo.  Rooms House in Sweden (pictured) is a co-operative housing scheme that aims to accommodate different forms of collective life, not necessarily determined by the structure of a traditional family.

HNNA Founded by Hannah Corlett, HNNA was responsible for the masterplan of the recently completed Greenwich Design District (pictured) which incorporates buildings by seven prominent international practices, including HNNA.  Corlett combines her work in practice with a role as a lecturer on the Architecture and Urban Design masters programme at the Bartlett, University College London.

 Office Sian Founded by Gurmeet Sian, Office Sian was responsible for the design of the Phoenix Garden Building (pictured), a community centre off Charing Cross Road in central London.  The project has been awarded the RIBA London Award and the Camden Design Award.

Spheron Founded by Tszwai So and Samuel Bentil-Mensah, Spheron has a particularly rich portfolio of community projects including the Belarusian Memorial Chapel (pictured) which it completed in 2017.  This new build wooden chapel was commissioned by the Holy See of Rome for the Belarusian Diaspora Community in London to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

This event follows an earlier evening on November 16 2021 which features presentations from Archio, Atelier Chang, Clementine Blakemore Architects and Sanchez Benton.
