As one would expect of one of the world’s most sought-after architects, Alison Brooks has had what she calls a ‘fantastic year’. She has worked across the globe, winning awards for projects in Barcelona and New York. Her crowning glory — the Cohen Quadrangle for Exeter College, Oxford — ‘has exceeded everyone’s expectations’, she says.Brooks never underestimates the importance of the little things. ‘It’sfantastic to work simultaneously at so many different scales,’ she says, ‘from the design of a cherry wood staircase to a major urban neighbourhood.’ In the 21 years since founding her firm, she has won numerous awards, including Architect of the Year and Housing Architect of the Year 2012 and several RIBA awards.
