Make Architects is an architectural practice based in the United Kingdom founded by Ken Shuttleworth after he left Foster and Partners in 2003. They have offices in London, Birmingham, Beijing, Hong Kong and registered offices in the Middle East. The practice is currently engaged in projects worldwide ranging from high rise offices to urban masterplans, residential and office developments, civic buildings, private and social housing, education buildings and interior design.

In 2012 Make was ranked 46th in The Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies to Work For category.[1] They were also awarded Practice of the Year - South East and London by the Architects Journal at the AJ100 Awards.[2]

Make Architects have been nominated twice for Building Design magazine's Carbuncle Cup, an annual award for "the ugliest building in the United Kingdom". Nottingham University Jubilee Campus was runner-up in 2009, while The Cube in Birmingham was nominated in 2010.
