Architecture in England
We have 4 pages of English Architecture selections with links to hundreds of individual project pages. We aim to select buildings that are either of top quality or interesting or ideally both.
We cover completed English buildings, new building designs and architectural exhibitions. We also post architecture competitions across England. The focus is on contemporary buildings in England but information on traditional English architecture is also welcome.

After a successful design competition, Faulknerbrowns were asked by Rochdale Borough Council to design a new civic office to achieve three strategic objectives:
• rationalization of their estate from thirty-three buildings into one;
• provision of an environment which delivers ‘new ways of working’;
• creation of a sense of community engagement and social transparency.
All of these objectives on their own stimulated and excited the design team; combined, they provided a unique opportunity to develop a special building within the challenging context of an economic downturn.
