Andrew Whalley succeeds Sir Nicholas Grimshaw as Chairman of Grimshaw

Grimshaw has announced the appointment of Andrew Whalley to the position of Chairman, succeeding Sir Nicholas Grimshaw, who founded the practice in 1980.

Andrew has been an instrumental part of Grimshaw since the practice’s early days, leading projects on a diverse range of sectors including education, performing arts, transportation and workplace. His award-wining projects include the International Terminal at Waterloo, the Eden Project in Cornwall, the redevelopment of London’s Paddington Station and the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center in New York.

Sir Nicholas Grimshaw commented: ‘Andrew has worked closely with me for over 33 years and has been involved in many of our key projects. He has undertaken the role of Deputy Chairman for the last eight years. I will continue to make available my experience from the last 50 years in practice.’

‘When I joined Grimshaw in the mid-80s, straight out of the Architectural Association, the practice was a small team focused on bringing ingenuity to simple industrial projects,’ said Andrew. ‘By leveraging our collective strengths and an insatiable curiosity for the world around us, we’ve developed into a 660-person practice with a global network of studios on four continents. I’m thrilled to be fostering another generation of the Grimshaw practice in pursuit of innovative design solutions that address the complex contemporary challenges that we face.’

As the practice continues to grow, Andrew will lead the firm into new opportunities and exciting projects around the world. In line with this growth, Grimshaw has also announced that two new Partners have joined their global leadership, with the appointment of Annelie Kvick Thompson and Andrew Byrne as Partners in their London and Los Angeles studios respectively.
