Del Hossain was born and grew up in Manchester before moving to London to study architecture – first at London South Bank University and then at the Bartlett School of Architecture.
After working at a number of practices including Orms and Foster + Partnershe left to briefly setup his own architecture firm with his wife. The work quickly came in – but so too did the realisation that practicing as an architect wasn’t for him.
From there, in 1998, he joined Adrem, where he remains as our managing director.
Architecture Masters is the new podcast from the LFA which extends this celebration throughout the year. In the podcast they talk to the people behind the buildings: a series of conversations with some of architecture’s leading lights.
These are the people quietly shaping our cities – all hugely respected within the architectural profession, yet somehow their modest profile often belies the impact they have on the world around us.
You might have seen the stunning buildings they create, but what drives the creative genius behind these designers as they balance the difficult and often conflicting demands of running a profitable business with their passion for delivering beautiful, functional and uplifting spaces.
Architecture sits at the boundary between the arts and sciences. As architects they are all natural polymaths – their expertise and interests spans engineering to economics, transport to typography. And their work touches every area of how we live today. They’re people buzzing with ideas, energy and a desire to change the world around them.
Architecture Masters take architecture as our starting point and let the conversation flow freely from there. This is a programme for those that are interested in the people who are shaping our world.
