Amin Taha

Chairperson, GROUPWORK

Amin Taha was born in Berlin, lived in Baghdad, then Southend-on-Sea before London from where he hasn’t moved much. He is currently chairperson at Groupwork Employee Ownership Trust, teaches and lectures on architecture, has sat for seven years with the RIBA’s National and International Awards jury, and more recently joined the Sir John Soane Museum as a trustee. Groupwork’s Clerkenwell Close using limestone exoskeleton was shortlisted for the RIBA’s 2021 Stirling Prize, as was Barrett’s Grove in 2017 for its exposed timber superstructure. The practice now aims to combine these materials as much for the aesthetic potential as for the negative carbon outcomes, namely the ability to turn the construction industry from a 40% contributor of manmade atmospheric CO2 to a carbon sequestration industry.
