Skidmore Owings & Merrill

60's architecture at its best

Fleet Place House

SOM founded in 1936, they became corporate pioneers in architecture and produced outstanding landmark buildings all around the world and still do. Along with ARUP in the UK, these are two companies which inspire me. I was lucky to work on the refurbishment of the Heinz Headquarters Building outside London and saw at first hand how these early pioneers worked their magic. Fleet Place House (Holborn Viaduct) was a legacy of projects such as Hayes Park and was a technical awakening. Great company.
