Profile

Wilkinson Eyre Architects, twice winners of the prestigious RIBA Stirling Prize, is one of the UK’s leading architecture practices. Its portfolio of bold, beautiful, intelligent architecture includes the giant, sustainably-cooled conservatories for the Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, the new Mary Rose Museum in the UK, the acclaimed temporary structure of the London 2012 Basketball Arena and the Guangzhou International Finance Center - currently the eighth tallest building in the world.

Wilkinson Eyre is responsible for a large portfolio of international projects and has designed highly successful projects in diverse market sectors including transport, the arts, commercial, infrastructure, masterplanning, bridge design, industrial, retail, leisure, educational, cultural and residential buildings, as well as component and systems design. Our architecture is based on an informed use of technology and materials, combining a commitment to the spirit of the new with a strong awareness of context.

From its beginnings in 1983 Wilkinson Eyre Architects has grown to a total of over 110 staff. Early projects included galleries for the Science Museum and award-winning transport buildings as part of the Jubilee Line extension at Stratford. At the same time Wilkinson Eyre established an unrivalled reputation for bridge design - most notably for the Stirling Prize-winning Gateshead Millennium Bridge.

The work of Wilkinson Eyre has been extensively published and exhibited throughout the world as part of major design exhibitions and as solo installations; and has received well over 200 design awards, shortlistings and commendations over the past ten years. The practice has published two monographs, Bridging Art and Science (2001) and Exploring Boundaries (2007). Both titles attempt to represent the philosophy behind the architecture: as a practice we like to use the latest technology in our buildings and we draw inspiration from both art and science, seeking an elegant simplicity that seems almost inevitable. We are keen to innovate and try to create something new with each project - each one is different, but there is a distinctive design approach which links all the work.
