Eric established Eric Parry Architects in 1983. Under his leadership, the practice has developed a reputation for delivering beautifully crafted and well considered buildings that respond to their context. London has been the focus and the setting for most of his work.

Eric Parry Architects is renowned for cultural projects involving sensitive historic buildings such as the restoration of St Martin-in-the-Fields Church in Trafalgar Square and the highly acclaimed new extension for the Holburne Museum of Art in Bath. He has also worked on several highly prestigious commercial projects in London’s City and West End, including Stirling Prize shortlisted schemes at 30 Finsbury Square and 5 Aldermanbury Square, and the recently completed One Eagle Place in Piccadilly. Clients include The Crown Estate, Generali, Aviva, Henderson Global Investors and Argent.

In addition to his work in architectural practice, Eric serves on the Royal Academy Architecture Committee, the RIBA Library Committee, the Kettle’s Yard Committee, the Canterbury Cathedral Fabric Advisory Committee, the Mayor’s Design Advisory Panel and the Council of the British School at Rome. He has in the past served on the Arts Council of England’s Visual Arts and Architecture panel, chaired the RIBA Awards Group and was President of the Architectural Association.

He was elected Royal Academician in 2006 and awarded the honorary degree of Doctor of Arts from the University of Bath in 2012.

His contribution to academia includes 14 years as Lecturer in Architecture at the University of Cambridge and lectureships at the Graduate Design School, Harvard University and the Tokyo Institute of Technology.
