Acre Architects is thrilled to be selected for the 2016 Wallpaper Architects Directory amongst a stellar group of trailblazers that we look forward to calling colleagues on our road to creating great things.

A pivotal experience in light of the recent loss of one of architecture’s great Architects – Zaha Hadid that the guardian called “ Queen of the curve”. The photoshoot took place at Zaha Hadid’s Middle East Centre at St.Antony’s College in Oxford University. Founded in 1957, the Middle East Centre at St Antony’s College serves as the University of Oxford’s facility for research and teaching on the Arab world, Iran, Israel and Turkey from the 19th century to the present day. It is humbling to stand in a group representing part of the future of architecture in the legacy of such a powerful individual. It was a great experience and we look forward to crossing paths often with this dedicated directory.
