Winnie the Pooh at the V+A

Alan Farlie

Prior to co-founding RFK Architects ltd, Alan worked at award-winning practice Stanton Williams for 13 years and during that time he had a leading role in many of the practice’s major exhibition, museum and gallery commissions, including Whitby Abbey Visitors Centre, Ashmolean Museum, Birmingham Gas Hall Gallery and The Royal Observatory, Greenwich.

Since setting up RFK Architects with Debby Kuypers, Alan has developed two main areas
of work. Exhibition and Museum projects for leading institutions include the redisplay of the Japanese Galleries at the British Museum, Anglo-Saxons and Magna Carta at the British Library, Vikings and Shakespeare at the British Museum and Curtain Up and Winnie-the-Pooh at the V&A.

Parallel with the exhibition work, Alan worked on high-quality commercial offices for developers like Great Portland Estates who appreciate the importance of good design and the use of high quality materials.

All projects receive the same level of consideration and creativity regardless of scale and subject.
