Murray Grigor, filmmaker, writer, and exhibition curator, is internationally renowned for his films about architecture and architects. Grigor directed and co-produced Pride of Place, the 8 part PBS SC-ETV series on American architecture with Robert A. M. Stern (1986). His first film, on Charles Rennie Mackintosh, won 5 international awards and he has since co-authored (with Richard Murphy) The Architects’ Architect on Mackintosh’s international influence.
Grigor writes and directs films on art, architecture and cultural politics in the United States and in Scotland, where he was born. His many award winners include Sean Connery’s Edinburgh, Eduardo Paolozzi – Sculptor, which won the Rodin prize at the 1992 Paris Biennale, and The Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright with Anne Baxter, which was made possible through a US/UK Bicentennial Award in the Arts. He directed and co-produced Face of Russia with James Billington, Librarian of Congress, for PBS WETA (1997).
Murray Grigor’s most recent film is Sir John Soane: an English Architect - an American Legacy (2006). Written and directed by Grigor and produced by Ed Howard, Checkerboard Foundation, New York. Grigor was the first recipient of the Royal Television Society Reith Award for “consistent and innovative effort in television,” the first filmmaker to win a “Citation of Excellence” from the American Institute of Architects for The Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright and the first filmmaker to be made an honorary member of the Royal Institute of British Architects.
