Ian Ritchie CBE RA (born 24 June 1947 in Sussex) is a British architect[2], artist and author, who founded Ian Ritchie Architects in 1981. His projects include the RIBA Award-winning Susie Sainsbury Theatre and Angela Burgess Recital Hall for the Royal Academy of Music[3], Sainsbury Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour, University College London[4], and the American Institute of Architects Award-winning Royal Shakespeare Company Courtyard Theatre. Ritchie was the first foreign architect to receive the French Academie d’Architecture Grand Silver Medal for Innovation.[5]

Career[edit]

Ritchie graduated from Liverpool John Moores University School of Architecture in 1968. He went on to research Urban Studies for a year in Oita-Osaka, Japan and graduated with a Diploma in Architecture with Distinction from PCL, London (now University of Westminster) in 1972.[6] After working with Norman Foster (1972–76), Ritchie spent two years in France designing and constructing projects before joining Arup's Lightweight Structures Group[7] (1978-81). In 1979, he founded Chrysalis Architects (1979-81) with Alan Stanton and Mike Davies.[8][9] In 1981 he created Ian Ritchie Architects in London, and co-founded the design engineering firm Rice Francis Ritchie (RFR) with Peter Rice and Martin Francis in Paris.[10] Before he left RFR in 1990, the practice had been responsible for major projects in Paris including the Bioclimatic Facades at La Villette Cité des Sciences and the Louvre Pyramids and Sculpture Courts with I M Pei.[11][12][13] Alongside his work at Ian Ritchie Architects, Ritchie has held numerous public and professional appointments relating to his public policy interests in pan-disciplinary and environmentally intelligent design. He has acted in an advisory and teaching capacity to government, universities and charitable trusts, and regularly lectures on topics including art, urbanism and regeneration at venues worldwide.[14] Among other accolades, Ritchie was awarded a CBE in 2000, and was elected a Royal Academician in 1998 and Professor of Architecture at the RA Schools in 2004.[15] Ritchie (and Ian Ritchie Architects) have received over 80 national and international award nominations and have been shortlisted four times for the RIBA Stirling Prize and EU Mies Award.[16] Ritchie is an elected member of the Akademie der Künste, Berlin.[17]

Major architectural projects[edit]

In 1999, Ian Ritchie Architects (alongside Scottish Homes and Thenew Housing Association) completed Scotland's Home of Tomorrow - new social housing for Glasgow's East End[18]
