The practice Ahrends Burton and Koralek was set up In 1961. Working internationally from offices in London and Dublin they carried out projects in the public sector over a period of about fifty years. “ABK’s roots are in the birth of a new socially engaged and optimistic architecture in the years after the second world war.” (Richard Rogers).
Kenneth Powell has written: “The work of ABK offers a source of inspiration to new generations of architects for whom the impact of buildings on people, places and the natural environment is an issue which needs to be addressed more urgently than at any time in history.”
Originally this event was to have been in the form of a dialogue with Paul Koralek speaking in dialogue with Peter Ahrends, but Paul was indisposed at that time. Following the success of Peter Ahrends’ eloquent talk we welcome Paul to give his point of view.
