Southwark Cathedral, London
Richard Griffiths was Cathedral Architect from 1997 to 2012, overseeing a major programme of repairs and upgrading to the Cathedral. The Millennium Project, opened by Nelson Mandela in 2001, involved the cleaning and floodlighting of the external fabric of the Cathedral, the relandscaping of the churchyard, and the design of new buildings around a new courtyard giving visitors access to the Cathedral from the Thames Path.

The buildings contain a refectory, shop, education centre and a range of meeting and function rooms that provide a vital source of income to support the wide range of services, concerts and activities promoted by the Cathedral.
