Allies and Morrison offshoot takes Bishop

  • Comment

Former London Development Agency (LDA) deputy chief executive Peter Bishop has gone to work for the newly created Allies and Morrison:Urban Practitioners (AM:UP)

Bishop – who set up Design for London in 2006 – has joined the urban design practice as director. In March he escaped the capital’s doomed development agency, announcing it was ‘time to move on and do other things.’

Bishop will now work with Helen Hayes, Antony Rifkin and Allies and Morrison partners on the studio’s planning, masterplanning and consultancy work.

He said: ‘I am very much looking forward to my new role with Allies and Morrison:Urban Practitioners.

‘I have huge respect for the work of both practices and I am excited by the prospect of blending our different skills to develop a unique perspective on how we tackle and resolve urban problems.

‘There has been a lot of debate about how architecture, planning and urban design can come together to shape our cities and create successful places, and I believe that we will jointly be able to take this forward in our work, and develop new approaches.’

Bishop previously worked with Allies and Morrison on Kings Cross Central and the BBC Media Village, and with Urban Practitioners on masterplans for the Northern Olympic Fringe and Three Mills Sugar House Lane.

Allies and Morrison joined with Urban Practitioners at the start of this month to form a new add-on practice. The company is geared towards tackling ‘complex contemporary challenges’ in global cities, it is claimed.
