Contributors on the night:
Having met at Edinburgh College of Art, Rab Bennetts co-founded Bennetts Associates in 1987 with his partner Denise Bennetts. The practice has since grown to around 80-strong with studios in London, Edinburgh and Manchester, and has won more than 150 awards.
In 2016 the practice became employee owned. Rab takes a personal, hands-on approach to projects and is keen to create a collaborative spirit throughout the practice’s activities. Current projects include the Edinburgh Futures Institute and the Woolwich Creative District in London.
He is also involved in research projects, professional committees and construction education outside the firm. Rab was a founder of the UK Green Building Council and is a Trustee of Sadler’s Wells Foundation.
