RIBA Gold Medal presented to Nicholas Grimshaw

Nicholas Grimshaw receives the RIBA Royal Gold Medal

Architect nominated by Simon Allford - and backed by Rogers, Foster and Cook

Nicholas Grimshaw has been awarded the Royal Gold Medal at a ceremony at the RIBA’s headquarters at 66 Portland Place.

It is the highest honour for architecture in the UK, presented by the RIBA in recognition of a lifetime’s work, and is approved by the Queen.

The RIBA said Grimshaw was arguably best-known for the landmark International Terminal at London’s Waterloo station and the visionary Eden Project in Cornwall, and that he had played a leading role in British architecture for more than half a century.
