Ben Langlands, * 1955 in London, Nikki Bell, *1959 in London; both live and work in London [GB]

Ben Langlands and Nikki Bell began their collaboration in 1987 while studying at Middlesex Polytechnic [1977-1980].
Their work examines our experience of architecture and our primarily urban culture at many different levels, exploring the places and structures we inhabit and the routes that penetrate and link them.
