JCA to star in television series


Jo Cowen Architects are featured in this article as one of the firms taking part in the new Channel 4 series ‘Ugly House’. Jo Cowen was interviewed by the Architects Journal about the thinking behind the series, saying: “There is a lot of ordinary in the UK – architects could play a real role in rejuvenating this kind of building stock rather than the unsustainable alternative of knocking it down and starting again.”
