RYDER ARCHITECTURE

Founded in 1953 as Ryder and Yates, Ryder Architecture is a leading architectural practice based in Newcastle upon Tyne, Liverpool, Glasgow and London. With its early achievements rooted in the European Modernism of Le Corbusier and Berthold Lubetkin, the practice has an integrated approach, designing buildings which elegantly fuse form with function.
