Archadia Celebrates 25 Years in Practice

This year Archadia celebrated 25 years in practice. On June 14th we celebrated in style with an event at the Ice Bar in London with current and previous staff, friends, collaborators, consultants and clients. Director Mark Slater’s speech reflected on the history of the practice, our social values, past achievements and aspirations for the future, he also thanked everyone who has been a part of the company, particularly Archadia founder Patrick Manwell and fellow director Jean Hanna who has provided the design inspiration for many of our large commissions.

At the event we launched our 2018 fundraising challenge #25for25 which staff will do 25 challenges that involve 25 things, we asked for suggestions and got a few that we will take on board like swim 25 lengths and dance for 25 minutes. The most imaginative idea won a bottle of wine, which was to design 25 left handed objects.

Thanks you to everyone who came to celebrate, it was a fun and laughter filled evening, also thanks to the Ice Bar team who ensured no one got frostbite!
