The first of three new volumes, Evolution: Volume 4 showcases Grimshaw’s best projects completed in the first decade of the millennium. It celebrates works ranging in scale and geography: from the renowned Eden Project in Cornwall with its vast clear-span biomes, to Australia’s first significant contemporary rail terminus Southern Cross Station, to New York’s EMPAC facility, a cutting-edge performance space. With an introduction by Blueprint editor Johnny Tucker, projects are illustrated in detail with drawings, photographs and a complete chronology. What emerges is Grimshaw’s consistent pursuit of excellence and innovation, distinguishing the practice since its inception in 1980.
Grimshaw was founded by Sir Nicholas Grimshaw in 1980, became a Partnership in 2007 and now operates worldwide with offices in Los Angeles, New York, London, Paris, Doha, Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Melbourne and Sydney.
Johnny Tucker is editor of Blueprint, the UK’s leading architecture, design and art magazine.
