AIR Architects are delighted to announce the appointment of Jurgen Kuppers as a Board Director.

Jurgen joins AIR after 20 years at Foster and Partners and has extensive experience in cultural, residential, commercial and infrastructure projects. Jurgen worked on high profile and complex projects across the UK and abroad, such as the Stirling Prize winning Swiss Re St Mary Axe high rise (also called the ‘Gherkin’), in the City of London and with Colm Tamney on No1 London Wall, located opposite the Museum of London.
