This year we are very excited to have William Matthews present the Cornwall Architectural Trust Summer Lecture.
William is the leader of the Shard design team and, in association with Ney & Partners, winner of the Tintagel Castle footbridge competition. The bridge will be completed in spring 2019.
William Matthews studied architecture at the University of Sheffield, completing his diploma in 1994. From 1994 to 2012 he worked with Renzo Piano Building Workshop in Paris. Projects completed during this time include the Beyeler Museum Basel, Potzdamer Platz Berlin, the Art Institute of Chicago and Central St Giles in London.
In 2013 he established his own firm, William Matthews Associates, based in London. Current projects include a new house on the White Cliffs of Dover, a footbridge in central London, a roof top restaurant near the Shard and a kayak for Wallpaper* magazine.
