William studied in Cambridge and Harvard before practising in London and Flanders. Since 2001 he has been a director of Witherford Watson Mann Architects, based in East London. The studio’s work focuses on the physical continuity of buildings, and the social transformation of cities and institutions. Their projects include the transformation of the Whitechapel Gallery, with Robbrecht en Daem Architecten, Gent; a house within the ruins of Astley Castle, for the Landmark Trust, for which they won the RIBA Stirling Prize 2013; a new theatre for Nevill Holt Opera and the transformation of the Courtauld Institute of Art. William has written for a variety of architectural publications on the edge landscapes of London and Flanders, on urban renewal and social change, and on the friction of time in the building process.
