Russell in surprise Pentagram switch

  • Comment

William Russell is to become the second prominent architect to join the London office of international design company Pentagram. He has been made a partner in the multi-disciplinary firm and is set to link up with its current architectural principal, Lorenzo Apicella.

Russell, a former business partner of David Adjaye, is now preparing to move his entire practice to Pentagram's Bayswater offices in March.

'The amount and variety of work will be amazing, ' said a delighted Russell, who admitted he was surprised when originally approached about the position almost a year ago. 'Opportunities like this don't come along very often, and when they do you have to jump on it. It's very exciting.' Russell is hoping the new role will mean more travel and an increased workload. He said: 'I'd love to do more work in the States and the brilliant thing about Pentagram is that everybody markets everybody else in the group. It's like a cooperative society.'
