Keith Wilson, RIBA Publishing, said: “We’re delighted to share this major milestone with Ryder and help produce something which really does document their unique style, character and ethos.
“The book draws on the rich contribution that the company has made, not only to record what its architecture achieves but also the ways it achieves it. In doing so it signposts the company’s next 60 years – its founding principles, deep understanding of how to exceed expectations, value of design leadership, teamwork and information handling, and of shaping the future not just reacting to it.”
Hugh Pearman, said: “With Ryder, there is an overall expression of design clarity. Their buildings show the thinking and the working. There is a tightness and intelligence to a Ryder building, an expression of what goes on inside and out. It may be coincidence or it may be deliberate, but I do find echoes particularly of Lubetkin – from whose north eastern studio in Peterlee Ryder and Yates first sprang – in some of their recent buildings.”
With a host of events scheduled throughout the year including exhibitions in Glasgow, Liverpool and London, the company will be sharing its history and milestones and also giving something back through support for different local charities and groups chosen by staff in the respective offices.
