Ushida Findlay Architects is an architectural practice based in London.

The practice is currently working on York Art Gallery and has just completed making the ArcelorMittal Orbit into a functional structure.[1] The Orbit was designed by Anish Kapoor and Cecil Balmond.

Ushida Findlay was originated in Japan, set up in 1986 by husband and wife team, Eisaku Ushida and Kathryn Findlay. They came to the UK in 1999, setting up the practice in Edinburgh.[2] However, the couple split-up and the company experienced financial difficulties, filing bankruptcy in 2004. Findlay launched her own separate practice.[2]
