Olympic Park North competition win

The Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC) issued its press release yesterday evening: erect architecture have won the Olympic Park North Hub competition!! !

The brief was to design a community hub and destination playground as part of the naturalistic northern Olympic Park.
You can see the competition boards here, our entry code is N2.

Judge Tim Gill, of rethinking childhood, play advocate and advisor, said “Their highly naturalistic landscape design, and understated, flexible building plan, are ambitious yet subtle, and should fit well in the wider park. The outdoor space has great potential to offer immersive, challenging, engaging play experiences.”

Thanks go to our great team: Jennette Emery-Wallis and Claire Greener from Land Use Consultants (landscape architects), Ian Jupp from HuntleyCartwright (quantity surveyors), Toby Maclean from Tall Engineers (structural engineering), Neil Daffin from Max Fordham (services engineering) and artist enabler Ashley McCormick.

The scheme will be delivered by Spring 2013 … we can’t wait to get started!
