21 Years, 21 Awards: The work of Richard Murphy Architects


For details of opening times please visit http://www.test.com/

Ranging from arts and education buildings, to community spaces and housing, Edinburgh-based Richard Murphy Architects have worked in many diverse areas.

This exhibition celebrates their 21st anniversary and showcases a range of award-winning schemes completed since their formation in 1991, including the British High Commission in Sri Lanka and Edinburgh's Maggie's Centre.

Concentrating on a specially selected range of works from the beginning of their career to the present day, the display looks at the primary themes regularly explored by the practice - in particular, dialogues with history and the home. 

The exhibition coincides with the publication of 'Of its Time and of Its Place: The Work of Richard Murphy Architects' (black dog publishing), a survey of Richard Murphy Architects.
