RIBA tribute: Michael Squire (1946-2023)

Wednesday 10th of May 2023 – RIBA President Simon Allford said:

“I am very sad to learn of the passing of Michael Squire.

Michael came from a dynasty of architects, and after working with his father, Raglan Squire, on projects in Jakarta and Bahrain, he founded his own award-winning practice in the late 1970s.

His work changed much of the fabric of modern London, with many award-winning buildings on challenging sites including Southbank’s Shell Centre, One Tower Bridge, and the Chelsea Barracks master plan.

His own practice’s awards include the 2018 RIBA National Award for The Department Store, described by judges as ‘a stunning building which demonstrates exquisite and sensitive restoration, filled with beautiful material choice, attention to detail and wonderful spaces’. This building with its restaurant, bar, office and club has become a centre for architectural debate and celebration – which is entirely appropriate as Michael himself continued his family’s long-standing engagement with architectural discussion, and in particular, the Architecture Club.

Michael was a highly valued member of the profession, sharing his fifty years plus of expertise in informal discussion – he was an engaging conversationalist and skilled listener – and more formally on many awards juries and appraisal panels. Michael studied architecture under the tutelage of Sir Leslie Martin and Sir Colin St John Wilson, and he himself became an inspiration to many of his peers as well as the next generation: most recently he served as a visiting critic at the London School of Architecture.

I shall always remember Michael as a thoughtful and generous man, who built a much-admired practice, then helped pass this practice on to the next generation. He was a fine architect who, with remarkable and admirable consistency, designed, and on occasion also developed, very fine architecture.

My thoughts are with his family and friends. He will be missed by them and all of us who knew him.”
