It's gorgeous to see how CW is more and more expanding to the other side of that tiny river in betweenThis will be such a nice modern and colder version of Venice in some years.

Whilst the POS at it's base still looks like it's been ripped straight from a Brazillian favela, no matter how nice the light.

..people who live there should hang out their washing to dry for the full effect.

Design starts on £108m Royal College of Art campus



The Royal College of Art has selected architect and engineering partners for a planned £108m building at its new south London student campus in Battersea.

Herzog & de Meuron will work with Mott MacDonald and Equals Consulting to develop initial concept designs.

The new 160,000 sq ft building will sit alongside the RCA’s existing Dyson Building and Clore Innovation Centre, and the Sackler fine arts facilities in Battersea.

Its new Battersea building will allow the RCA to expand the number of start-ups in InnovationRCA, the College’s commercialisation and business incubator.

It is planned to offer new programmes at the intersection of design and science, such as robotics; wearable technologies; the application of ‘smart materials’ into new product areas; and city design.

London office construction hits eight-year high



Total office construction work across central London has hit an eight-year high with 14.8m sq ft of space currently under development.

The latest Deloitte London Office Crane Survey highlighted a 4% rise over the summer survey and shows construction 41% above the 10-year average of 9.7m sq ft.

The survey also found that construction periods on some schemes have been extended, with completion dates slipping by an average of one quarter.

Nearly 1m sq ft of space that had originally been due to complete by the end of Q3 2016 remained under construction at that time.

New starts were also down 42% from the record high number recorded in the Summer survey.

Forty new office developments started during the six months of this latest survey – adding 2.8m sq ft to the pipeline – compared with 4.8m sq ft across 51 schemes in the summer.

The major trend in London currently has been an increase in refurbishment projects which are typical at the end of a long period of strong development.
