Vincent Lacovara

Architect; Urban Designer / United Kingdom / AOC

Vincent Lacovara studied architecture at the University of Cambridge and the Royal College of Art where he received a distinction for his dissertation. He worked within Levitt Bernstein Associates and Cullinan and Buck Architects before founding AOC in September 2003 when he also joined the Urban Design Team at the London Borough of Croydon.

Working within London’s largest borough as a Senior Urban Designer has enabled Lacovara to concentrate on developing urban policy and strategy, lead negotiations with developers and their consultants on key sites, and provide critical advice on major development and regeneration schemes. Continuing involvement in architectural practice as a director of AOC adds to Lacovara's experience of working on a variety of projects, from private residential house extensions to urban master plans; and from one-off gallery installations to broader participation and engagement projects.

Lacovara is a studio tutor at London Metropolitan University and has taught at the University of Nottingham and the Welsh School of Architecture. He is also a visiting critic at several other universities. Lacovara sat on the Southwark Design Review Panel and is a member of the RIBA Building Futures Advisory Panel. He is a registered chartered architect.
