Since founding AKT II with partners in 1995, Albert Williamson-Taylor, as the design director, incorporates his passion for cutting-edge technology into the practice’s projects throughout the UK and overseas.

Albert believes that sustainable engineering stems from a progressive attitude towards design. He enjoys working with design teams to realise project visions using the best engineering techniques, and he boasts a portfolio of many prominent buildings, including Zaha Hadid’s Generali Tower in Milan and the Central Bank of Iraq in Baghdad; Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners’ LSE Centre Building, AHMM’s Villagio Vista in Accra, the tallest building in Ghana; Google’s new HQs in San Francisco and London; Norman Foster’s Bloomberg’s European HQ in the City of London and Thomas Heatherwick’s Google Building, Seed Cathedral in Shanghai and the Vessel in New York.

Albert also drives the technical direction and shapes the development of AKT II’s computational research, pushing the boundaries of structural design. He is prolific in his approach to create sustainable valued structures in the UK and abroad.
