AOC was established in 2003 by a group of London-based designers who 'decided they wanted to ask the same questions'. Not exclusively concerned with architecture, they claim to be able to 'design you a home, write you a book or build you a city - or design you a book, build you a home and write you a city'.
Current projects include housing, live/work studios, schools, roofscapes, follies, urban board games and a book on pigeons. AOC was included in The Observer's 'Best and Brightest 2005'. The practice took third place in the competition to design a new London home for the Architecture Foundation and was recently selected for the Elephant and Castle architects housing panel.
