Vincent ChangDeputy Chairman
Vincent is Grimshaw’s Group Managing Partner. He has been with Grimshaw since 1996 and has played an instrumental role in the expansion of the practice while maintaining a commitment to the quality, rigor and reputation for excellence that Grimshaw is known for. He established the firm’s New York office in 2001 and was instrumental in securing the AIA New York Chapter’s Medal of Honor Award in 2015.
Vincent has led many of the practice’s most notable commissions in North America including Via Verde – the Green Way , the winning entry in the New Housing New York competition, and Horno3: Museo del Acero , the adaptation of a historic blast furnace facility into Monterrey, Mexico’s museum of steel. His focus on engineering and beauty is exemplified by the soaring atrium of Lower Manhattan’s Fulton Center , opened in late 2014.
The revitalised transit hub is define both by its increased ease of use and it’s soaring atrium capped by Sky-Reflector Net, a clever public art installation that paints the sky across the building’s interior while directing natural light deep into the station environment.
On the west coast of the United States, Vincent has guided a new master plan for Los Angeles Union Station and is deeply involved in planning and design for Pier 70, an emerging part of San Francisco.
Vincent is a graduate of Cambridge University and is a registered member of both the Royal Institute of British Architects and the American Institute of Architects.
