Meet the team putting Everything architecture
at the heart of what they do
It was a pioneering spirit and a certain amount of chutzpah that saw Gordon Ryder and Peter Yates form their own practice - Ryder and Yates - in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne back in the 1950s. Drawing on their experiences working with Le Corbusier and Ove Arup, it was clear right from the start that delivering projects that worked for clients, required thinking that transcended traditional disciplines and silos.
Today, operating as Ryder Architecture, and with offices in Newcastle, Liverpool, Glasgow, Hong Kong and Vancouver, it's no surprise to see the team delivering 'Everything architecture' with the goal of improving the world around us and in so doing improving people's lives.
Those aims have seen the firm embrace and champion the new era of collaborative construction and deliver award-winning projects in the UK and around the world. And through their BIM Academy joint venture, with Northumbria University, launched in 2010, the team have been instrumental in spearheading the wider digital construction revolution.
For all that has changed, it's heartening to see the core values remain true to those original tenets espoused by the founders of the firm.
