Abstract

In 2007 NORD were appointed to work with the Olympic Delivery Authority to develop a strong contextual approach to a key utility building within the Olympic Park. The building is not designed as an event venue in its own right, but as part of a number of buildings that form the fabric of the Olympic site itself; having permanency, weight and dignity. The utility structures are being developed to consider a common palette of reference materials where these relate to their use and location Awards and reviews: Article In Brick Bulletin.
