Working in Architecture: Jamie Fobert Architects.
FOBERT.
Working in Architecture: Jamie Fobert Architects.
Jamie Fobert Architects (JFA) has gained a reputation for innovative and inspiring architectural design for houses, retail and the arts. Working in Architecture sets out to convey not only the finished product of an architecture practice but also to make plain the process of design inherent in the work. With introductory texts by Joseph Rykwert and George Baird, the book is divided into four parts, each of which documents a set of projects by JFA, following the sequence of the design process from sketches to development to completed work. The practice's residential projects are celebrated for their sensitivity to the historic context, which they sympathetically partner with contemporary design concerns. Retail projects, for clients including Selfridges, Givenchy and Versace, have offered the opportunity to explore new ideas and experiment with materiality. The firm has also worked with a number of artists and key arts institutions such as Tate Britain, Tate Modern, Frieze Art Fair, the V&A and the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art in Moscow. The practice has won three major public commissions for extensions to Tate St Ives, Charleston Farmhouse and Kettle's Yard Gallery. Following his graduation from the University of Toronto, Fobert went on to head David Chipperfield Architects' Berlin office before teaching at European schools including the Architectural Association, London, and University of Lausanne, and establishing his own practice in London in 1996. JFA has garnered several awards including the Manser Medal; and the RIBA and English Heritage Award for Building in an Historic Contex
