Ian Ritchie Architects Ltd.

Projects Director

Gordon is currently the Partners Advisor to the London Doctoral Design Centre (LDoc) - an umbrella organisation for doctoral research at the Royal College of Arts (RCA), Kingston University and the University of the Arts London (Central St Martin’s, Camberwell, Chelsea). He is an RIBA External Examiner for the BA Architecture course at the University of Westminster.

Gordon has recently completed 5 years in the role of Projects Director leading the iRAL and consultant team for the £75m Sainsbury Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour at UCL. He led the design and delivery of Bermondsey Station and six mid-line vent shafts for London Underground/Jubilee Line extension. Through to 2009 he led the brief development, master planning, detailed planning consent and construction design for the transport infrastructure elements of the Whitecity (Westfield London) development (construction value £120m). This included consultation and negotiations with a complex group of transport related stakeholders, two local authorities and the wider community.

Gordon has a long-standing interest in concrete and was influential in the early decision to expose concrete finishes on the Jubilee line and promote the use of GGBS, developing a close working relationship with Bill Monks, one of the most influential individuals in the British Concrete Association (BCA) in the 1960s and 70s. Gordon was a member of the Working Party that authored the Concrete Society Technical Report 52 'Plain Formed Concrete Finishes'.
