Make Architects is an international architecture practice headquartered in London. Founded in 2004 by former Foster + Partners architect Ken Shuttleworth, today the firm has offices in London, Hong Kong and Sydney. The practice has a diverse portfolio with projects including high-rise office buildings, large mixed-use schemes, urban masterplanning, sports and leisure, private and social housing, civic and education buildings, and interior design.

Make is a 100 percent employee-owned company with over 150 partners, or ‘Makers’. In 2016 the practice won the Architects’ Journal AJ100 Employer of the Year Award and in 2014 won the AJ100 Practice of the Year Award.

Make is a member of numerous professional organisations, including the British Council for Offices (BCO), City Architecture Forum, City Property Association, Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, Education Construction Network, New London Architecture, Professional Business & Services Council, Royal Institute of British Architects, UK Green Building Council, Urban Land Institute, and Westminster Property Association. Ken Shuttleworth will be the BCO president in 2017.

Make Architects has been nominated three times 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,[1] while The Cube in Birmingham was nominated in 2010 and the redevelopment of 5 Broadgate was nominated in 2016 [2]
