AA Archives: Amarjit Kalsi Drawings Donated
We are proud to announce that the family of AA alum, Amarjit Kalsi (1957-2014), have donated to the AA Archives a set of his virtuosic student drawings. Amarjit (Amo) graduated in 1981 and went to work for Richard Rogers and Partners, where he became a director in 1988, at the young age of 30. During his time with the practice, Amo played a leading role on some of their most prestigious projects including the Lloyds building, the Millennium Dome, the European court of human rights building in Strasbourg, and Barajas airport in Madrid.
Amo entered the AA as a student in 1975 and immediately acquired a reputation as a talented draughtsman and designer. In his 4th Year, he was a member of Diploma Unit 3, under tutors Jeremy and Fenella Dixon, where he produced the above scheme for a Airship shuttle service between central London and Thamesmead… His 5th Year was with Diploma Unit 6, under Peter Cook and Christine Hawley, and amongst the donated drawings are three projects from this unit, including stunning designs (below) for a redevelopment of Porchester Baths and for a Pump Room for Regent’s Park.
