Robert Matthew Johnson-Marshall and Partners

Robert Matthew Johnson-Marshall and Partners
   Robert Matthew and Stirrat Johnson-Marshall established RMJM as an architectural practice in Edinburgh and London in 1956. A prolific output of small-scale and larger commissions reflects RMJM’s multidisciplinary nature and stylistic diversity, commencing with Turnhouse Airport, Edinburgh (1956) and including the Commonwealth Institute (1962), the Universities of York (1966), Stirling (1974) and Lincolnshire and Humberside (completion 1999), Cockenzie Power Station, East Lothian (1968), Royal Commonwealth Pool, Edinburgh (1969) and Hillingdon Civic Centre (1976). New Zealand House (1963) is an early example of the postwar modern movement. RMJM’s founding commitment to social architecture has developed by combining dynamic aesthetic and technological considerations with a conservationist conscience, as with Glaxo Wellcome HQ, Greenford (1997).
