The Eye of the Needle, a route through the City of London's Culture Mile
24 10 2017
Pilbrow & Partners together with Space Syntax proposed ‘The Eye of the Needle’, a new pedestrian route through the 'Culture Mile'. The ideas were shortlisted in a competition to transform the City of London’s north-west corner into a new arts district.
Twelve slender steel masts mark the route, like needles in a map. Distinctive in form – tapering triangular polished obelisks that sparkle in the day and glow softly at night – the masts would be eye-catching landmarks in their own right, as well helping to highlight hidden gems, interesting architecture, historical sites and cultural activities within Culture Mile.
Pleased to be at MIPIM UK this week showcasing a selection of our projects at the London Stand. Fred Pilbrow was delighted to be part of the Opportunity East panel discussion, talking about the challenges but mainly the opportunities for growth that area has to offer.
Delighted to announce two of our projects have been awarded The American Architecture Prize 2017.
UCLH phase 5 has been selected by the jury as a winner in the Healthcare Architecture category, and our design for St Mary's Somerset Tower has been selected as a winner in the Heritage Architecture category.
