Richard Murphy was educated at Newcastle and Edinburgh Universities and for four years taught at Edinburgh University and researched the work of the Venetian Architect, Carlo Scarpa, at the Castelvecchio, Verona.
Richard founded the Practice of Richard Murphy Architects in 1991 which has since won 22 RIBA, and currently holds the accolades of UK house of the year, Scottish building of the year and Irish building of the year.
His work has ranged from domestic through to public and private Housing; Theatres and Arts Centres and buildings for Education and Health. The new British High Commission Building in Colombo Sri Lanka, for the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, was shortlisted for the RIBA Lubetkin Prize.
Most recently, the Practice has been involved with major mixed developments in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow and work in higher Education in Cambridge, Belfast and Edinburgh, together with a number of healthcare projects particularly for the care of patients in mental health and dementia.
Richard’s work has been extensively reviewed and he himself frequently contributes to architectural journals. He has and continues to lecture widely both on Scarpa and on his own work both at home and abroad.
Join us for a night of insightful description and explination by Richard on how his practice has been making architecture that is of its time and of its place.
