Tim Makower

Tim Makower is an architect, urbanist and a cultural polymath. He studied at the University of Cambridge and the Royal College of Art in London. In 1990 he joined Allies and Morrison, a leading architectural and urban design practice in the UK. During his 28 years there, many as a Partner, he completed a number of significant projects, such as the masterplan for King’s Cross Central, Bankside 123, Liverpool One, Paternoster Square and St Andrew’s Bow, and became a respected designer of landmark developments in the UK.

In 2008, Tim began working on projects in Doha where he was the masterplanner and architect for Sidra Village - a 9-hectare community at Education City. He was also the ‘Architectural Language Advisor’ for the Msheireb Project, a 35 hectare / 8 million square feet mixed use development in the old city centre.

In 2012 Tim founded Makower Architects, in both London and Doha, which has now grown into firmly established practices in both locations. In Doha, ongoing projects include the Al Rayyan Gate masterplan, multi-story car-parks for Al Rayyan and Al Sadd Gardens, new zoning regulations for Al Ghanem & Doha Al Jadeeda neighbourhoods, as well the Qatar Urban design Compendium.
