Designers of ‘The Eden Project North’, RIBA present ‘Evolution’, an exhibition on Liverpool Waterfront by Sir Nicholas Grimshaw.
Earlier this year the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) presented the UK’s most prestigious award for architecture, the Royal Gold Medal, to Sir Nicholas Grimshaw. This award is presented annually by RIBA on behalf of the British Monarch.
To celebrate the work of Sir Nicholas Grimshaw, RIBA in partnership with Grimshaw Architects is hosting an exhibition of models, films and drawings at RIBA North on the Liverpool Waterfront.
The exhibition 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 exclusive drawings, models and film, they celebrate the evolution of Sir Nicholas Grimshaw’s career and practice over five decades and look at the future of the practice – including the development of Eden North on the shores of Morecambe Bay.
