Life after Will Alsop with aLL Design


Will Ing visited the directors of aLL Design to talk about Will Alsop’s legacy and their plans for the future of the practice

Will Alsop lived a full and colourful life until his death three months ago at the age of 70 from a short illness.

His architectural legacy includes the Stirling Prize winning Peckham Library, the Toronto Sharp Centre for Design and North Greenwich Tube station.

Alsop was involved in a number of practices during his life before setting up aLL Design in 2011 where he worked up until his death in May. He is survived by aLL Design directors Marcos Rosello, Lucy Atlee and associate director Maxine Pringle.

Rosello previously spent eight years at PRP, while Atlee worked at Gordon Murray and Alan Dunlop Architects before joining Alsop at RMJM and moving with him to aLL Design. Pringle worked with Alsop for many years, starting at SMC Alsop and then at Archial, RMJM and finally aLL Design.

The studio works on a range of projects, including across offices in China and Doha, with £3m-4m of work in the pipeline. We caught up with Rosello to discuss Alsop’s legacy and plans for the practice’s future.
