Gavin Henderson

Gavin joined Stanton Williams in 1994. He has worked on a number of the practice’s high profile projects, including Compton Verney Art Gallery, the Millennium Seedbank and public realm proposals for Sloane Square. He was the director responsible for delivering the new Sainsbury Laboratory at the University of Cambridge and is leading the project for a new city museum in Berlin.

With a particular interest in the development and culture of cities and the role of public space, much of Gavin’s work has involved interventions in complex historic contexts and schemes involving a close engagement between architecture and the public realm.

Gavin has been a visiting critic and lecturer at a number of UK schools of architecture and has taught at London Metropolitan University. He is currently a Design Surgeon for Urban Design London and is a past member of the National Design Review Panel for CABE. Gavin studied architecture at the University of Cambridge and the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University and was awarded the RIBA Bronze Medal, and a commendation for the RIBA Silver Medal, for his student work.
