Library of Birmingham

Palazzo’s Centenary Square, the largest public square in the heart of Birmingham, currently lacks cohesion or a clear identity or atmosphere. Mecanoo’s design transforms the square into one with three distinct realms: monumental, cultural and entertainment. These palazzos form an urban narrative of important periods in the history of the city; The Repertory Theatre (REP), a 1960s concrete building, the Library of Birmingham, designed in 2009 and Baskerville House, a listed sandstone building designed in 1936. The busiest pedestrian route in the city, what Mecanoo calls the red line, leads pedestrians into Centenary Square. The cantilever of the library is not only a large canopy that provides shelter at the common entrance of the Library... More

Wembley Stadium

Since opening as the Empire Stadium in 1923, Wembley captured the nation’s heart as the home of football. World-wide venue fame followed, with international events including the 1948 Olympic Games, England’s World Cup victory in 1966 and the Live Aid concert in 1985. By the late 1990’s it was agreed that Wembley needed full redevelopment to bring the English National Stadium into the new millennium. The new 90,000 seat Wembley Stadium was designed by the World Stadium Team, a joint venture between Populous and Foster & Partners, as a multi-purpose venue to host soccer, rugby, concerts and, by the installation of a temporary deck above pitch level, athletics when required. Th e geometry of the design brought the Wembley heritage into the... More

The Young Vic

The Young Vic Theatre is one of London’s leading theatre venues, with a record of innovation, strong links with its community, and a concentration on theatre by young practitioners for a young and diverse audience. Its original building, although much-loved by audiences and theatre practitioners, had reached the end of its life. At the same time, the Young Vic needed a building better suited to the ambition of its recent work. The redevelopment, transforming the main auditorium and adding two new studio theatres, office and workshop space, and a new foyer, has won the affection of existing and new audiences, opened new opportunities for the Young Vic’s work and provided a vibrant focus for the regeneration of the Cut. Built in 1970, Bil... More
