Oct 2020Royal Academy Summer Exhibition

A model of the Gradel Quadrangles at New College Oxford has been selected for inclusion in this year's Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Carved out of a block of Ancaster limestone by the stonemasons Grants of Shoreditch, the model shows the intended form, material and craftsmanship of the building that is currently on site and due for completion in 2023. The exhibition is open from 6th October to 3rd January 2021. For more information, visit the project webpage

Sep 2020Greenwich Site Progress

The construction of two workspace buildings in Greenwich as part of the Design District continues apace. The giant brick colonnade to building A4 is beginning to take shape. Scaled to the district rather than the building, it extends a generous welcome to the whole site. For more information about the project, see David Kohn's interview with Jemima Burrell about the influences on the design, hedgehogs and foxes at the Design District website.

Jun 2020RIBA London Award Shortlist

The V&A Photography Centre has been shortlisted for a 2020 RIBA London Award. The project more than doubled the space available to display photography whilst reinstating the grandeur of three galleries in the Grade 1 listed building. Works to the fabric of the building and its systems significantly improved environmental performance and control allowing fragile photographic materials to be put on display for much longer periods. The Centre was opened by HRH Duchess of Cambridge on 10th October 2018 and received over 600,000 visitors in the first ten months. Read more about the project here
