On graduating from the Architectural Association in the late nineteen sixties, Gordon Benson and Alan Forsyth joined the architects department of the London Borough of Camden where they were responsible for a series of pioneering housing projects including the Branch Hill estate in Hampstead.  Benson & Forsyth's subsequent projects have included the extensions of the Museum of Scotland (1998) and National Gallery of Ireland (2002) and most recently, Gabriel Square, a major housing scheme in St Albans (2017).
