Richard MacCormac leaves practice to set up on own

  • Comment

Richard MacCormac has left the practice he co-founded in 1972 to set up a new consultancy

The 73-year-old will continue to work in MJP Architects’ Spitalfields office, east London and expects to ‘collaborate on some current and future projects’ with his former company.

However the move will allow MacCormac to carry out ‘work in his own right’ and under his ‘own name’ .

MacCormac said: ‘Independence gives me the opportunity to seek new ventures while continuing to collaborate with MJP on a number of projects.’

Meanwhile MJP managing director Jeremy Estop said: ‘Richard has always been inspirational in the practice, in both its design direction and ethos, and we look forward to continuing to work together in this new arrangement.’

Among the recent buildings completed by MJP include the Kendrew Quadrangle for St John’s College, Oxford and the latest Maggie’s Centre in Cheltenham, and a student union and laboratory for Warwick University.


Origninally set up as MacCormac Jamieson Prichard in 1972, MJP has been 100 per cent owned by an Employee Benefit Trust since October 2007 when Richard MacCormac sold his shares to the practice.

The practice currently has residential, office and education projects in Birmingham, Cambridge, Coventry, London, Oxford and Jersey (pictured).

The company continues to work in Asia and is shortlisted for a cultural centre in China.
