Hawkins\Brown Replaces GMW on £100m Olympic Media Centre Revamp Job\

Hawkins\Brown's revised design introduces a gridded structure on the building's east façade which will house small-scale start up businesses.

A yard designed for community events will also be created between the broadcast centre and neighbouring 29,600m² press centre. Allotments, orchards, an apiary and retail outlets focussing on local artisan products are also planned for the development.

Hawkins\Brown partner David Bickle said: ‘These gargantuan buildings present a huge opportunity to create an entirely new neighbourhood. We were given an almost blank canvas to design something that captured and reflected East London’s creativity and soul.
