Cullinan, Edward


Cullinan, Edward
   b. 1931, London
   Architect
   Educated at Cambridge and Berkeley, Cullinan established his own architectural practice, Edward Cullinan Architects, in 1965 after an eight-year period with Denys Lasdun. He has been a professor at London, Sheffield and Edinburgh Universities, and has won many prizes including the 1991 Financial Times Architecture Award for the RMC International Headquarters work which he carried out in 1985–9. Significant building projects are Horder House, Hampshire (1960), Minster Lovell Mill, Oxfordshire (1972), Parish Church of St Mary, Barnes (1984), and the Visitor Centre at Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal (1992). Noted for what the Architectural Review christened ‘romantic pragmatism’, Cullinan’s bor-rowings from the logical approach of modernism reconciled traditional materials, highly skilled craftwork and a sense of propriety.
