London Exhibition Launch7 June 2013
Ryder Architecture continues to celebrate its 60th birthday year with the successful launch of a Ryder retrospective exhibition at the Building Centre. The launch event on 6th June was a relaxed and lively evening, attended by senior figures from all areas of the built environment industry.
Says Peter Buchan, Senior Partner at Ryder, “It’s a credit to all the people who have worked at Ryder in its 60 year history that we can put together an exhibition of such important projects across such a range of sectors.”
The exhibition runs until the 27th June, and charts the challenges, developments and complimentary strands of architecture across the decades, mapping Ryder’s work and seeking to place it within the context of the times. The projects chosen for the exhibition particularly highlight Ryder’s long standing use of interdisciplinary collaborations to support flexible design teams that answer the increasingly complex demands of management, economics and technology within design in the built environment.
Peter continues, “Working together – multi-disciplinary working – has always been at the core of Ryder’s ethos, from the very beginning with Gordon Ryder and Peter Yates’ innovative partnership in 1953, up to the present day with the Ryder-led Future of Built Environment Education campaign to reform built environment education and entry to the industry professions.”
The exhibition started it tour at the Briggait in Glasgow, and will move on from London to Mann Island, Liverpool, in October and finish at the BALTIC Centre in Newcastle in November.
Ryder’s 60th anniversary year has already seen some prestigious successes, with the practice winning two categories in this year’s AJ100 Awards; New Member of the Year, and the Best Place to Work in the North East & Yorkshire. Ryder has also achieved Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For, 2013.
