Ken Shuttleworth (born 1952 in Birminghammarker) is an Englishmarker architect.

Shuttleworth studied architecture at the City of Leicester Polytechnic School of Architecture (now the Leicester School of Architecture, De Montfort Universitymarker), where his fluid draftsman earned him the nickname "Ken the Pen".

Shuttleworth worked with Norman Foster's Foster and Partners, latterly as partner, for nearly thirty years. Shuttleworth worked on the original designs for 30 St Mary Axemarker (Londonmarker's "erotic gherkin") the 40-storey radical City of London skyscraper that houses insurance giant Swiss Re; He worked on the London Millennium Bridgemarker, the new Wembley Stadiummarker and Ken Livingstone's new City Hall, a project for which he did indeed make many of the design decisions.

His first significant solo building was Crescent House, in Wiltshiremarker, his country home, built in 1997.

In 2003, Shuttleworth left Foster and Partners, to found his own architectural practice, MAKE Architects. Shuttleworth was recently appointed to supervise work for a redevelopment of the Elephant and Castlemarker area of south London which he originally began designing while at Foster and Partners, and he is also working on Birmingham's £7 million new coach station in Digbethmarker and The Cubemarker, a 17 storey perfect mathematical cube to be built as an extension to Birmingham's canalside Mailboxmarker development. The first project completed by Ken since leaving Foster and Partners is a small Judo centre (or 'Dojo' as it is known) in Dartford, South-East London, and was opened by the Princess Royal in early 2006. The Dojo is also the first completed purpose-built facility for the London 2012 Olympics.

Shuttleworth and members of his staff appeared in the final of the UK 2007 edition of The Apprentice, where they advised the two remaining contestants on designing an iconic building for London's South Bank.

Ken Shuttleworth is a commissioner of the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment, an executive non-departmental public body of the UK government which promotes better design and design education.
