Architect honoured for lifetime’s work
Nicholas Grimshaw has today been announced as the winner of the RIBA’s Royal Gold Medal.
He is probably best known for the Eden Project and the International Terminal at Waterloo Station, but he and the practice he founded in 1980 have completed numerous projects spanning the globe.
Grimshaw said: “I am thrilled to hear about the Gold Medal and would like to thank those who supported my nomination. My life, and that of the practice, has always been involved in experiment and in ideas, particularly around sustainability; I have always felt we should use the technology of the age we live in for the improvement of mankind. I would like to thank everyone who has ever worked in the office for contributing to our bank of ideas, and for helping to make it an enjoyable and humanistic place.”
