History:

Halcrow’s pedigree stretches back to 1868 when Thomas Meik, one of the most knowledgeable men of his time on docks and harbour works, set up in practice as a consulting engineer.

Thomas Meik retired in 1888 and left the company in the hands of his two sons, Patrick and Charles and the company became Thomas Meik and Sons and later P.W. and C.S. Meik. Under the brothers the company continued to make steady progress with docks, harbours and railway projects preeminent.

In 1921 William Halcrow was taken into the partnership which in 1923 became known as C.S. Meik and Halcrow and then W.T. Halcrow and Partners in 1941.

History

Tadao Ando was born in Osaka, Japan on September 13, 1941. His career started off as a professional boxer, but he found his interest in architecture as he worked part time for a design firm. He is a self-educated architect who learned and found his own style of architecture by travelling, mostly in Europe, Africa, and the United States. He is unique in the sense that he has never received any professional training in the field, yet has worked himself up to the likes of Louis Kahn and Le Corbusier. He founded his office in 1969, and is currently Japan’s most recognized and respected architect.

Ando is well known for his exposed concrete design, as well as the integration of nature within his works. He focuses on blending in his work without disturbing the surroundings, and seeks “to create a space where people can live, think and create.” In one of his novel, Ando states that he was heavily influenced by the works of Le Corbusier, yet reiterate that he “interprets it in his own fashion”, signifying the importance of filtering what he perceives through his own experiences.
