Adrian Hill, Milena Patru and Florina Pop from United Kingdom

Adrian Hill and Milena Patru are both chartered Architects in the UK, having met while working in a private practice in West London. Florina Pop is a PHD candidate in Architectural History and Theory at the University of Innsbruck, Austria.

Adrian came into architecture via art school and studied at Portsmouth, Westminster and Oxford Brooks and has worked for a number of leading practices in London.

Milena went on to study in Rome and then at the Bartlett School of Architecture in London, while Florina continued her education in Barcelona, Berlin, Rome, and Milan specializing in conservation and exhibition design.

Brief information about the projects that you/your company have been involved with. For instance what scale have you focused on/preferred, any significant projects where company/ individuals have been involved?

Adrian and Milena have worked together on a number of well crafted domestic projects at varying scales in London. In addition, Adrian has further pursued this line of work as a sole practitioner and Milena has worked on a number of new build family homes and farmhouse conversions in Romania. Florina brings a vast amount of academic research and experimental workshop experience to the team.

What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?

Architecture is a great way to discover the world through creativity and craft and an opportunity to share this with others.

Why do you participate in architecture vision competitions?

The competition was a good way to test how the team worked together. It is also a challenge to engage with a subject rarely encountered in everyday practice.

What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture vision competitions?

It is important to find a reason to participate that goes beyond the competition outcome.
