Harper splits with partner Mackay to go it alone

David Harper, founding partner of Harper Mackay Architects with Ken Mackay, is to leave the practice in a bid 'to pursue other ventures and opportunities'. Harper is now committed to setting up as a sole practitioner, working on a number of new projects yet to be revealed.

London-based Harper Mackay Architects - which rose to 72nd in last year's AJ100 with 30 qualified architects - was founded in 1985 and has had considerable success in a number of different fields; in particular, premises for television companies.

Harper told the AJ that there is 'nothing sinister' about his departure and that it is simply time for a change. 'After 17 years of working on Harper Mackay, I have decided to set off to follow up other ventures, ' he said. 'I will not be working with anybody else on a full-time basis, ' Harper added. 'But I will, however, collaborate with other architects on my new schemes.'
