Aedas mourning Andy Robson, 44

  • Comment

Aedas Architects' design leader Andy Robson has died suddenly, aged 44.

Robson, who was one of the practice's 31 directors and its 'guardian of quality', was based in Manchester. His work contributed to the city's renaissance, beginning with his scheme for 201 Deansgate. Other major city centre projects followed, including One Marsden Street, the Observatory, and his residential scheme Left Bank - part of the Spinningfields development on the River Irwell.

Robson was also masterplanner and architect for projects outside Manchester, notably Davenport Green, Henry Square in Ashton, North Manchester Business Park and Cheadle Royal.

He was appointed a partner of Holford Associates in 1988 at the age of 30. In 1999, Holford Associates merged to form Abbey Holford Rowe, now known as Aedas Architects.
