We are delighted to be part of the design team announced as winners of the Olympicopolis competition. Working alongside Allies and Morrision, Josep Camps/Olga Felip Architecturia, Buro Happold, Gustafson Porter and Gardiner and Theobold.
The new cultural and education quarter on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, East London includes new buildings for the Victoria and Albert Museum, Sadler’s Wells and the London College of Fashion, part of the University of the Arts London. The site, at the gateway to the park, will also provide 75,000sqm of new homes.
‘Cultural and educational buildings and the public realm have been the critical purpose of our practice for more than 25 years. It feels like all our work has been leading towards this extraordinary commission.’
‘And we’re happy to be back again in London where we began our careers in architecture. We greatly look forward to collaborating on the creation of an exciting urban quarter in this new part of town.’
