Through his teaching and research, combined with extensive practical experience. he has been at the leading edge of the development of new ways of understanding the intersections between materiality and ideas in architecture.

ROEWU architecture is an energetic young practice based in London and Taiwan but with a global profile as a result of international design awards and publication and exhibition of the office’s work. ROEWU was founded in New York in 2003 after winning First Prize in the International competition for Ephemeral Structures for the Athens Olympics.
In 2005 ROEWU was awarded the Young Architect’s Award by the Architectural League of New York, North America’s premier award for young architects.

In 2005 the partners were invited to teach a Diploma Unit at the Architectural Association in London, extending the research of their practice further in an academic setting.

In 2006 ROEWU represented the UK in the Beijing Biennale along with Fosters and Arup and in 2007 the practice was awarded the Kevin Kieran Award by the Arts Council of Ireland.

In addition to practice Stephen has led a Graduate Diploma Unit at the Architectural Association in London. He was Lefevre Emerging Practitioner Fellow at Ohio State University (where he was mentored by distinguished critic and Theorist Jeff Kipnis) and also taught Design at the New York Institute of Technology. He has been an invited critic to architecture schools in the US, the UK, Taiwan & Hong Kong. He is currently Visiting Associate Professor of Architecture at Feng Chia University in Taiwan.
