This week Architecture Journal announced the 2019 best UK architectural practices measured by the number of qualified architects employed and income fees at the Tower of London during their AJ100 the gala dinner and awards ceremony.

The AJ100 is a ranking of the largest UK architectural practices and it is published annually since 1995.
This survey offers a timely snapshot of the profession over the previous calendar year and measures the level of optimism among practices for the year to come.

Grimshaw play the lion’s share being this year’s AJ100 Practice of the Year on the back of serious business growth combined with exemplary design and a diversity strategy one judge described as ‘astonishing’ and their London Bridge Station overcome the competition being nominated AJ100 Building of the Year 2019. We are very honored for having there chance to visit their studio during our tours part of London Festival of Architecture!

But we are even very proud to see a lot of the architecture firms we met and visited during our educational tours amongst the Best UK architectural practices!

This is the AJ 2019 Best UK architectural practices ranking:
