About Change this

Sir Nicholas Grimshaw is an English architect. From 1959 to 1962, he studied at the Edinburgh College of Art before winning a scholarship to attend the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London, where he won further scholarships to travel to Sweden in 1963 and the United States in 1964. He won a bronze medal awarded by the French Société d'Architectes Diplomés par le Gouvernement (Sadg), for one of the three best theses discussed at the Architectural Association. He graduated from the AA in 1965 with an honor degree and entered into a partnership with Terry Farrell. In 1980 he left the partnership with Farrel and become senior partner of the firm Nicholas Grimshaw & Partners. In his design Grimshaw stress his focus on clarity of concept, structure and details. He repeatedly warned against contemporary architecture's obsession with the building skin. He is probably best known for the Waterloo International Train Station and the Eden Project.
