Introducing Clive Lewis
Recently appointed HASSELL Principal Clive Lewis is highly respected and experienced architect specialising in the design of major sports stadia and venues.
Clive will be based in our London studio and brings with him more than 20 years’ experience across large scale architecture, working in the UK, Europe and Asia.
“Clive’s appointment complements our existing global team of sports design specialists who are currently working on complex and high profile projects including the transformation of Darling Harbour in Sydney, Australia and Perth Stadium in Western Australia,” said global Sports and Entertainment sector leader, Glenn Scott.
In addition to his world class sports architecture credentials, Clive also brings with him a wider portfolio in education, leisure, commercial and workplace, retail and residential architecture.
Most recently Clive has led a number of large stadium projects, in Europe and Asia, for AECOM. Prior to this, Clive was lead sports architect at Arup Sport working on the main Beijing National Stadium (in conjunction with Herzog and De Meuron), as architectural design lead on the Singapore Sports Hub, including the Singapore National Stadium, OCBC Aquatics and OCBC Arena, the Tokyo Olympic Stadium (working alongside Zaha Hadid Architects), Abu Dhabi National Stadium, and concept design architect on the Shaktar Donbass Arena.
“As a multidisciplinary practice working across multiple sectors, HASSELL is a natural fit for me and is aligned with the way I work as part of a team, always looking for the best possible outcome for the end user,” said Clive.
“I look forward to joining the international team at HASSELL and contributing to the outstanding projects not only in the UK and Europe, but across the globe,” he said.

Ben Duckworth appointed to the Victorian Design Review Panel
HASSELL Principal Ben Duckworth has been appointed to the highly regarded Victorian Design Review Panel.
Consisting of architects, urban designers, landscape architects and planners, the panel provides independent and authoritative advice to government and statutory decision makers across Victoria about the design of significant development proposals.
As part of the panel Ben will review projects that are significant due to their site, context or complexity, or because they will establish a precedent of new development, and subsequently offer advice to the Office of the Victorian Government Architect.
On the appointment Ben said: “It’s a real privilege to be able to make a contribution to the design discussion in Victoria.”

Galleries need to move away from the traditional white box
The Louvre doesn’t do it, and neither does the Guggenheim. The Tate Modern’s new galleries make a good job of it, and the Hepworth Wakefield contemporary art gallery in Yorkshire gets close.
