About Grimshaw Architects
Grimshaw was founded by Sir Nicholas Grimshaw in 1980. The practice became a Partnership in 2007 and operates worldwide employing over 600 staff. The practice is dedicated to the deepest level of involvement in the design of its buildings in order to deliver projects which meet the highest possible standards of excellence.
Our objective is to search for optimal solutions to create a built environment that uses the planet’s resources carefully. Through this pursuit, we design buildings and environments that work, inspire people and transform communities. Everything we produce, from buildings to master plans to industrial design, is the culmination of an evolutionary process that derives beauty from form, economy and efficiency. With each project we learn more about creating forms and places, serving processes and people, and respecting the fragility and resources of our planet.
