On Friday 8 June, GHA once again opened the doors of its London studio as part of the London Festival of Architecture (LFA) Fitzrovia Open Studios evening.
The studio showcased five projects:
- Wardian residential development in Canary Wharf
- Eco Park Stadium in Stroud competition entry
- John Lewis store in Oxford’s Westgate Centre
- London City Island project incorporating masterplanning, housing and the new English National Ballet HQ
- STIHL Treetop Walkway at the National Arboretum at Westonbirt.
Over 200 guests attended over the course of the evening. They were able learn more about these projects and GHA via a display and accompanying models. There was also the opportunity to meet members of the team and take a stroll around the wider model collection and design studio with a drink in hand. Our Middlesex House neighbours (Make Architects and Fletcher Priest Architects) also successfully took part in the event, giving visitors plenty to see in just one building.
Later this month GHA will be taking part in another LFA event. On the Tuesday 26 June Glenn will lead a tour and architectural presentation of Royal Wharf alongside Alex Ely of Mae Architects and Chris Lee of Serie Architects. They will explore what gives Royal Wharf its identity and why London is always being re-invented, as well as how understanding the history of the site and the wider context of London’s ‘great estates’ have shaped the architecture. Free tickets are still available and can be booked here.
We are looking forward to taking part in this popular celebration of architecture again in 2019!
