Allies and Morrison sets up new urbanism offshoot

  • Comment

AJ100 big hitter Allies and Morrison Architects has joined up with long-term collaborators Urban Practitioners to form a new ’ integrated’ urbanism practice

Allies and Morrison:Urban Practitioners (AM:UP) will be based in Allies and Morrison’s Southwark headquarters and has already landed its first commission - a town centre masterplan for Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation.

Practice founder Graham Morrison confirmed that the new planning, masterplanning, and urban design offshoot would work as a separate entity to the existing practice and that the link-up was not a ‘sale or a purchase’.

He added: ‘This is about both practices doing what we do already, but doing it better because of the cross-fertilisation of ideas. This is the best way, we think, of responding to the complexity of the urban context we work in.’

The outfit will be led by the partners of Allies and Morrison together with the current managing directors of regeneration and planning specialists Urban Practitioners Helen Hayes, Antony Rifkin.

Over the last eight years the two practices have worked in collaboration on a range of urban projects including the Stratford-on-Avon masterplan, the Lewisham Area Action Plan, Romford’s Urban Strategy, the Tottenham Hale Urban Centre masterplan, the Shoreham-by-Sea masterplan and the masterplan for Dover.
