Hopkins, Michael

Hopkins, Michael
   b. 1935
   Michael Hopkins is one of Britain’s most prominent architects. Along with other awardwinning architects such as Norman Foster (see Foster Associates) and Chris Wilkinson, Hopkins has been given a station on the new Jubilee Line extension to design. His style is often called ‘friendly high-tech’, as opposed to the uniquely British phenomenon of high-tech where buildings wear their insides on the outside, combining structure and function, a style owing more to the aircraft and space industries than to the organic or to human scale. His Lords Cricket Ground stand, designed with his wife Patty, and his new, enlarged Glyndebourne Festival Theatre, which preserved the countryside feel of its rural location, have both been well received.
