Herzog & de Meuron Skyscraper Unveiled for New Canary Wharf Development

London firm Allies and Morrison has submitted planning applications for a 9.23 hectare, mixed-use development east of London’s Canary Wharf. Dubbed “Wood Wharf,” the new neighborhood will include upwards of 3,000 homes, 240,000-square-meters of commercial office space, 100 retail outlets, hospitality and more - all interconnected by a 3.6 hectare network of public space.

A 56-story, cylindrical skyscraper designed by Herzog & de Meuron will be one of three residential buildings planned for the scheme’s first phase, designed in collaboration with Stanton Williams. Allies and Morrison, who provided the revised masterplan for Canary Wharf Group, will design the first two office blocks targeted at technology-based companies.

RIBA Replaces the Lubetkin Prize with the New "International Prize"

The RIBA has announced that the Lubetkin Prize, awarded annually for the past thirteen years to the architects of the "best new building" outside the European Union, is to be replaced with the new "international prize" in 2015. As a result, there will be no RIBA International Awards or Lubetkin Prize awarded in 2014. According to the RIBA, "the Lubetkin Prize has been a useful platform to highlight the work of RIBA members around the world. We are currently working on creating a prize that has even greater international impact and look forward to announcing more details in the future." The Lubetkin Prize's last recipients were Wilkinson Eyre and Grant Associates for Cooled Conservatories, Gardens by the Bay in Singapore.

Why Workspaces are Obsessed with the Open Plan

In a brilliant article for Der Spiegel, "The New Monuments to Digital Domination," writer Thomas Schulz not only rounds up our reigning tech giants' oddly-shaped offices - from Apple's "spaceship" to Amazon's "biodomes" - but also pinpoints what they have in common: horizontality. And why? Because an "open creative playground" without boundaries (like floors or walls) is "the perfect ideas factory: the ideal spatial environment for optimally productive digital workers who continuously churn out world-changing innovations." And while this means that privacy has gone out these workspaces' proverbial windows, Schulz isn't too surprised - after all, "people have no right to a private life in the digital age." Check out this must-read article here.
