Full House for High Streets Panel Discussion

Gort Scott welcomed an audience of 75 to its Bermondsey studio for LFA panel discussion How Do You Solve a Problem Like New High Streets.

Directors Jay Gort and Fiona Scott were joined by an accomplished panel who were posed questions surrounding strategic approach; working at a local level; design and delivery of a strategy; the relationships between people and place; and integrating well-being and social value into high street design.

A huge thank you to everyone who came by to spend the evening with us, and to our panelists for joining us to discuss this topical and multi-faceted issue:

Morwenna Hall (Partner and COO at Argent LLP)
Alpa Depani (Head of Strategic Planning & Design at LB Waltham Forest)
Eleanor Fawcett (Head of Design at OPDC)
John Nordon (Co-Founder at Neighbourhood company)

The programme features a strong team in Rumi Bose, Hassell, TEMPLO DESIGN, Ash Rao, James Parkinson, Camilla Siggaard Andersen, Susie Hyden, Adam Scott, Kat Hanna, Elly Watson, Andrea Carpenter, Oli Whittington and Lucie Murray.

Property X-Change was developed by the Greater London Authority, CBI (Confederation of British Industry), Cross River Partnership, Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), British Property Federation, London Councils, London First, Guardians of the Arches, the Mayor of London, and Transport for London Property, with support from the Bloomberg Foundation.

St Hilda’s Shortlisted for Brick Awards Educational Building 2022 

Gort Scott’s transformative development for St Hilda’s College in Oxford has been shortlisted for the Brick Awards 2022 Educational Building category. Comprising two bold and elegant buildings which sitting in a redesigned landscape, the Anniversary Building defines the boundary of the College and strengthens its street presence, whilst the glazed Pavilion nestles on the edge of the River Cherwell and provides a space for lectures and events.

In developing the new buildings’ appearance, we have echoed and reinterpreted characteristics and idiosyncrasies of neighbouring College buildings. While the predominant material used is brick, linking these new additions to their context, decorative detailing such as a scalloped frill to the top storey of the Anniversary Building cultivates a unique identity, with precast concrete components and bronze-coloured metalwork providing contrast.

We are pleased to have been included in the Brick Awards shortlist amongst so many other exciting and innovative educational spaces.

Winners to be announced 10th November 2022

30 Objects in 30 Days

The London Festival of Architecture’s 30 Objects in 30 Days is back for its third year and day No.4 features Gort Scott Associate Andrew Tam and Architect Ewa Effiom sharing their thoughts on the place of architectural drawings in an ever-shifting industry.

“For our submission, we decided to talk about architectural drawings. Drawings are often the first step in the act of building, but they make architecture exclusive because of the type of education you need to read them. Both of us are interested in making the architecture profession inclusive and so ponder their relevance to society beyond the profession.” - Catch Ewa and Andrew’s thoughts here.
