Richard MacCormac

It was sad news to hear that Richard McCormac passed away. Karen Pickering in our office always talked of the inspiration she drew from her time as a student architect working in his office. He was an inspiration for many architects during the 80s and 90s in his consummate and articulate evocations of an ‘English Architecture’ full of skill, wit and human scale. He was a constant reminder that it is possible to create settings rooted in the lessons of tradition but always in the hopeful spirit of the contemporary contribution of our time. He will be missed as a clear voice.
