Established in 2000 by Daniel Rosbottom and David Howarth, London based DRDH engages with architecture as an international condition, across practice, academia and the written word. This strategy of looking outwards has resulted in work that is located across a number of countries and continents, providing diverse opportunities to approach architecture as a social, civic and cultural condition across a wide range of scales and project types. More broadly it has offered a platform from which to reflect upon global practice. In 2016 DRDH were nominated for the prestigious BCI Swiss Architecture Award, an international prize to recognize significant contributions to contemporary architectural culture.
Recent works have included two high profile projects in Bodo, Norway for a new concert hall & theatre and a city library, together named winner of the prestigious Norwegian State Architecture Prize 2015. The projects also received an RIBA Award for International Excellence 2016, were a finalist for the inaugural RIBA International Award 2016 and nominated for the 2017 European Union Prize for Architecture, The Mies van de Rohe Award.
