News Evolution Exhibition Opens in Shanghai

Grimshaw’s exhibition, Evolution: The work of Grimshaw Architects opened in Shanghai Thursday 28 November, an exhibition in partnership with The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) celebrating the architectural feats of Grimshaw founder Sir Nicholas Grimshaw.

The exhibition follows on the heels of the award of the RIBA Royal Gold Medal, the highest prize for architecture in the UK, to Sir Nicholas. Starting with Grimshaw’s earliest projects in the 1980s, the exhibition aims to take viewers on a journey from foundation to the future. New additions to this iteration of the exhibition include large scale models of the RIBA National Award-winning London Bridge Station and the Shanghai Disney Resort Tomorrowland.

“Shanghai is an important location for us as we develop collaborations with The Eden Project in Sheng Lu Vineyard, Beijing; Yan’an; and Qingdao in China as well as celebrate the success of our Shanghai Disney Resort Tomorrowland project. We look forward to continuing the conversation with RIBA and the local community to continue to drive excellence in architecture internationally.” Andrew Whalley, Chairman of Grimshaw.

The exhibition will be held at Roca Shanghai Gallery and will run from Thursday 28th November to Friday 6th December. It will be free to visit from Monday to Saturday, 9am to 6pm.
