Anthony Grimshaw retrospective, a joint event with Manchester Modernist Society

May

Born in 1936, Grimshaw formed Anthony Grimshaw Associates in Wigan, Lancashire in 1962. He had studied at Manchester Art School followed by Town Planning and Urban Design at Liverpool. The work of the office went from individual (strongly Modernist) house projects in the 1960s to schools and churches in the 1970s and ’80s, to Wigan’s first purpose-built hospice in the 1990s, and more recently church conservation work. His £57,500 garden gazebo in the grounds of a Modernist house at Alderley Edge – also designed by Grimshaw – won an RIBA award, together with the very first Architects’ Journal Small Projects Award in 1996. Two recent conservation projects were shortlisted by the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings for their John Betjeman Award and there were several mentions in Pevsner over the years.
