Another architectural great - Richard Macormac - died in 2014
An architect, writer and teacher, Richard MacCormac studied at Cambridge and then the Bartlett.
His working career began at Powell & Moya, before he moved to Lyons Israel and Ellis. In 1972 he founded MJP with Peter Jamieson and David Prichard.
Over the course of his career he designed many notable buildings, including the Sainsbury building at Worcester College Oxford, Fitzwilliam College Chapel in Cambridge, the Ruskin Library at Lancaster University and the Wellcome Wing at London’s Science Museum.
His tube station at Southwark managed to combine references to Charles Holden and Karl Friedrich Schinkel in a project that does justice to the tradition of high-quality infrastructure on the Underground.
