George Grey Wornum

George Gray Wornum was an architect who worked in the first half of the 20th century. In 1910 he set up his own independent architectural practice, and his first commission was a studio in St. John's Wood. The decade of the 1930s saw his major works. The new building for the Royal Institute of British Architects was built at 66 Portland Place, London and earned him national recognition. In 1936 Wornum was one of three architects who were in charge of the coronation decorations; he was responsible for the processional route. He died in New York on 11 June 1957.
