Luke Lowings

Director, Carpenter | Lowings Architecture & Design

Luke Lowings MA (RCA) ARB was born in Cambridge, England (1961) and studied Architecture at Kingston Polytechnic and the Royal College of Art, following a Foundation Course in Art and Design. Hemoved to New York in 1989 and for twelve years worked in the studio of sculptor James Carpenter, testing the relationship of light, structure and material in architecture. During that period he became a registered architect in the UK and New York State. In 2001 he returned to London, setting up a partnership with James to continue their explorations.  Luke is now sole owner of Carpenter|Lowings.

Over twenty five years Luke has produced a unique body of work spanning the disciplines of art, architecture and engineering: always linked by a fascination with the integration of light into the experience of public space. With his studio and in close collaboration with engineers, and fabricators all aspects of project responsibilities are developed, from design and construction documentation, to fabrication and installation.

The work of the studio has been recognised and published widely over the years: most recently receiving  the Daylight Project of the Year and Architect of the Year in 2018 at the Lighting Design Awards.
