Born in East Berlin to Sudanese and Iraqi parents, Amin Taha later moved to the UK and graduated in Architecture from the University of Edinburgh.  He set up his own practice, Groupwork+Amin Taha after working in the office of Zaha Hadid.  The Barrett's Grove housing development in Stoke Newington was shortlisted for the Stirling Prize in 2017 and the practice has subsequently completed 15 Clerkenwell Close, a mixed-use building that makes innovative use of loadbearing stone and acommodates Taha's home and office.
