Steven WARE

Architect - Senior Partner - Member of the Executive Committee

Steven studied biology at Western University and architecture at the Architectural Association.

As a partner with ArtBuild and founder of its internal Lab, Steven steers the development and application of bio-adaptive design principles, seeking new ways to fuse ethics and aesthetics. The Lab works with biologists, academics, industrialists, and research groups, exploring biomimetic concepts which can be transferred to mainstream construction practice. A pioneer and proponent of mass timber buildings, Steven has delivered dozens of projects across Europe which have become significant markers in the drive to decarbonise the construction industry.

He lectures widely on subjects that bridge biology and the built environment, and through these exchanges he learns about the challenges, successes and pure excitement that comes with revealing the intelligence and elegance of natural systems.
