MA Dip Arch RIBA FRSA AWG

Julian Bicknell (b 1945) was educated at Winchester College and Kings College, Cambridge where he completed both MA and Dip Arch courses at the University of Cambridge Department of Architecture. He subsequently worked with Edward Cullinan (1969-72).

He joined the teaching staff at the Royal College of Art under Sir Hugh Casson in 1972, and became director of the Royal College of Art Project Office (1973-79). In 1979 he joined Arup Associates. He set up his own practice in 1983.

His early career was concerned with the modification, alteration and restoration of existing buildings, many of them of considerable historic importance. Since establishing his own practice he has been increasingly involved in the design and construction of new buildings, in which the lessons of history are combined with contemporary architectural thinking and technology.

Despite a growing number of building projects, he continues to teach in Britain, and abroad. He was deeply involved in the development of the Prince of Wales Institute of Architecture between 1990 and 2000, on the Academic Board and as a teacher, both at the Institute itself and also at the ground-breaking international Summer Schools in Italy, Germany, France and the UK. He has also taught and lectured in the USA, Russia and Japan. In 2013 Julian Bicknell was elected Master of the Art Workers' Guild.

Julian Bicknell has two grown-up children and lives in Twickenham with his wife, the painter Treld Pelkey Bicknell.
