To celebrate, we are delighted to announce that we will be reflecting on these milestones, sharing our history and our future projects with the 20|60 Exhibition! The exhibition was launched last month in Edinburgh and will be in our London studio in Alfred Place for our drinks reception on Thursday 29th September from 6.00-9.00pm. It will then travel to our Manchester studio for a reception on 20th October and finally to Glasgow later in the year. We are looking forward to marking these significant milestones with you and will continue to update you all as the celebrations continue their tour of the country!
“Planners and architects, as the chief designers of our physical environment, should never forget that the most important thing about a city or town is the people.” – Percy Johnson-Marshall, Rebuilding Cities from Medieval to Modern Times
This year we are honoured to be celebrating not one, but two anniversaries’ at jmarchitects; Percy Johnson-Marshall and Partners, our original practice, was established 60 years ago and our current practice jmarchitects was established 20 years ago.
Johnson-Marshall’s private practice (PJMP) was formed in 1962 from the planning section of Robert Matthew’s Edinburgh office. During the 1960s and 1970s, it undertook commissions around the globe, while in Scotland its work included the Lothian Regional Plan, the Central Borders Plan, and the Grangemouth/Falkirk Plan. Johnson- Marshall was also particularly active in Edinburgh. jmarchitects (rebranded from PJMP in 2002) builds upon this heritage and works across a number of sectors across the UK, our work is founded on the principles highlighted by our original founder “the most important thing about a city or town is the people”.
We are delighted to see really good progress is being made at Worship Square with the jump from concrete core now past the halfway mark.
A huge congratulations to Monika Matusik, based in our Edinburgh studio, who graduated this month with an HND in Computer Aided Architectural Design and Technology
