As part of a team outing at Barton Willmore, I joined colleagues for a guided tour of a high rise residential development they are currently delivering in Poplar, East London. There are many positive aspects to the project, in particular the high quality detailing that has been achieved. Not forgetting the unique views of landmarks including Canary Wharf, Billingsgate Market, London City Airport, Robin Hood Gardens, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Millennium Dome and the City of London. Project details can be found here.
My first design project will be in the city of Oxford. The chosen site is the area around a small slither of land forming an island in Castle Mill Stream, a backwater of the River Thames that runs through the western part of town, flowing next to St George’s Tower at Oxford Castle.
Design projects will be…1. Instrument; 2. Di-section; 3.Workshop.
