Sir Nicholas Grimshaw was awarded the 2019 Royal Gold Medal, the UK’s highest honour for architecture, at a special ceremony at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) on 14 February 2019. 

Presented by the RIBA in recognition of a lifetime’s work, the Royal Gold Medal is approved personally by Her Majesty The Queen and is given to a person or group of people who have had a significant influence 'either directly or indirectly on the advancement of architecture'. 

Playing a leading role in British architecture for more than half a century, Nicholas Grimshaw is arguably best known for the landmark International Terminal at London’s Waterloo station and the visionary Eden Project in Cornwall. Coinciding with the presentation of the Royal Gold Medal, the RIBA has opened a free exhibition charting the story of Sir Nicholas Grimshaw’s career from the 1960s to the present day.
