Sir Roger Talbot Waters, CBE, FRIBA, FI Struct E,[2] was a British architect noted for his role in a number of major post-war projects in London from the Thames Barrier to the redevelopment of Covent Garden. He also worked on a number of housing developments across London, including the Palace Road Estate[3] in Tulse Hill, and Brentford Dock and Marina.[4] As Chief Architect of the Greater London Council he developed a more low key style, in contrast to the high rise ethic of the 1970s and pioneered the use of public consultation in architecture.[5]
