Andrew Thomas joined Grimshaw in 2001 in London, becoming a Partner in 2012. In the last decade, Andrew has played a leading role in the development of Grimshaw’s aviation work from his base in the London office. He was central to the development of Grimshaw’s competition-winning design for Pulkovo Airport in St. Petersburg, and he led successful competition teams on major projects at Frankfurt Airport and the new Moscow Business Airport.

Andrew recently led the Grimshaw team in designing the Istanbul New Airport project, a new six-runway development on the shores of the Black Sea, 35km from the centre of Istanbul, Turkey. The project seeks to provide a generous and modern airport that is inspired by the history and culture of Istanbul. Once opened, it will be the largest single airport terminal building in the world.

2016 Bud Prize Announced!

This year’s Bud Prize kicked off with our eleven second-year architecture students presenting to the competition jury on Thursday, December 8th, then met again (with family, friends and the community at large) on Friday, December 9th for a reception and awards ceremony.

This year, the students were challenged to design a live-work bookstore. The program asked the students to a accommodate a bookstore, a cafe, a space for local art, a “hotel” room for overnight stays by visiting authors and, of course, a residence for the bookstore owners. The site was located on 39th Street in Kansas City, Missouri–already a vibrant, eclectic mix of shops and restaurants. The studio was taught by Profs. John Eck and Ted Seligson.

This year’s jury was composed of:
Trevor Hoiland (Helix Architects, Bud Prize Sponsor)
Joy Swallow (UMKC Dept. of Architecture, Urban Planning + Design)
Patricia O’Dell (Writer on Design, UMKC Communications)
Bill Bruning (AUP+D Advisory Board Member)
Jay Siebenmorgen (KSU Dept. of Architecture)

After spending the afternoon reviewing all the projects, the jury awarded the 2016 Bud Prize to Calistro Reyes! Honorable mentions went to Samantha Davis and Tayvia Navy. A big thanks from the UMKC AUP+D to Helix Architects, our distinguished jury and all our tireless students!
