Grimshaw Wins 2019 RIBA Award

The Royal Institute of British Architects has awarded Nicholas Grimshaw the rightfully earned title of 2019’s RIBA Royal Gold Medal to praise his lifetime of creative projects.

President of the RIBA foundation, Ben Derbyshire, claimed that this recognition was “well-overdue” as Grimshaw’s work is known across the globe for his breath-taking contemporary structures. Grimshaw has been responsible for many significant designs across the world, most notoriously being the Eden Project, Pulkovo Airport in St Petersburg and the International Terminal in Waterloo. Grimshaw also designed several features in Bath, United Kingdom, including the Thermae Bath Spa and the Herman Miller Factory in partnership with Terry Farrell.

Ecstatic about his recent victory, Grimshaw stated "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.”

He added, "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."

The gold medal, which is personally approved by the Queen, was awarded to Grimshaw for his innovative approach, artistic aptitude and his significant architectural advances.

"For more than half a century, Sir Nicholas's influence has been exceptional," Derbyshire added.

"He is responsible for an extraordinary number of buildings and infrastructure projects of international significance, and for the continuous development of an architecture, which places technology at the heart of the aesthetic."
