Ex-RMJM supremo joins Graeme Massie Architects

Ex-RMJM chief executive Brian Stewart, the driving force behind the much-troubled Scottish Parliament project, has joined the payroll of Graeme Massie Architects

Stewart, who designed the over-budget, Stirling Prize-winning Holyrood building together with Enric Miralles, left RMJM in 2005 (AJ 02.09.10) after spending 31 years at the practice.

A chartered civil engineer, Stewart will be working on improving Graeme Massie Architects’ international presence ‘as well as cultivating the business design portfolio by seeking collaborations that encourage forward-thinking design and best practice in architecture’.

He said: ‘Throughout my career my commitment has been to innovative, creative and forward-thinking design.  Graeme’s uncompromising standards and intuitive design skills are renowned and I am delighted to be joining his team.’

The Edinburgh-based outfit has been working with Stewart since he left RMJM through his role at property development company Hazeldene.

Graeme Massie is currently working on a range of projects, including next year’s Edinburgh Art Festival pavilion and a series of major masterplans in Iceland

Graeme Massie said: ‘Brian’s experience in managing high profile, high budget buildings across the world will be instrumental in growing the practice whilst broadening its project portfolio.

‘For a young architectural practice to be supported and advised by such a prominent and respected design industry figure is an invaluable opportunity for greater presence in the market, in addition to giving clients greater comfort with regards to the delivery of high quality buildings.’
