Hugh trained at the Architectural Association. He began his professional career with Peter Rice, with whom he co-authored Structural Glass on the first bolted structural glass design at the La Villette Science museum. HDA, his specialist architectural design firm, was formed in 1995 in Paris. The practice has collaborated on many now significant projects around the world. It continues to concentrate on multidisciplinary design in architecture and engineering, combining themes of geometry, light, and the environment.
