Reactions to Chris Wilkinson’s Death:

One replied: “So sorry to read that Chris Wilkinson has passed away; I found Chris to be an architect of great skill and refinement. One of the nicest people you could meet and a talented artist. He seemed to develop his team for the sake of their careers and not for the sake of the practice.”

Royal Academy shared as well: “We are sad to hear of the death of Chris Wilkinson OBE RA on the 14 December. He was a gifted architect and devoted Royal Academician. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.”

Another expressed: “Very sad to hear the passing of Chris Wilkinson of the architectural practice Wilkinson Eyre, the designers of – amongst many projects – the Stirling Prize-winning iconic Gateshead Millennium Bridge.”

A friend wrote: “Chris Wilkinson was a great designer, a kind man whose work appears to be about crisp engineering + high tech materiality but is more than that (from first-hand experience as a client) as WE are experts at listening + caring; I suspect due to his ethos. He will be much missed :(.”

ING Media tributed: “The whole ING team sends its condolences to the Wilkinson family and the team @WilkinsonEyre. Chris Wilkinson was an inspirational architect, artist, client, and a friend to many of us. We will remember him through the enjoyable times we shared and the legacy of his work. RIP.”
