Gort Scott Shortlisted in Archiboo Awards

This year the Gort Scott Communications team has been hard at work developing a new look for our Instagram that reflects our core business principles. With this new iteration of our social media we aimed to bring joy and cultivate curiosity; sharing projects, perspectives and insights which give an intimate view into how we operate as a practice.

We’re so pleased to have this work acknowledged by Archiboo in their Best Use of Social Media Award for 2022. Archiboo was established in 2016 as platform for recognising creative storytelling and new ideas within architecture.

Winners to be announced in November.

LondonOn Awarded Commendation for Circular Block Competition

We are delighted that members of LondonOn have been awarded a commendation for international competition ‘Circular Block - Reinventing the Mikrorayan’ which will be featured as part of the Tallinn Architecture Biennale.

The Circular Block competition explores architecture’s capacity to creatively convert waste to energy and materials through a circular economy. Through the design of an urban unit that operates as a circular system in its resources and economy protocols, the aim of Circular Block is to define new productive and socially cohesive urban models that question the traditional consumption and production systems in cities.

This follows our group being named as Winners in the LAX Laksevåg Masterplan urban design competition in Bergen, and they are currently shortlisted for the Grønlikaia Waterfront competition in Oslo. We have found these collaborations to be enriching and offer new perspectives on what it is to be involved in a large project.

Our proposal for Circular Block was designed in collaboration with:

Pudding Mill Lane Featured in NLA Queen Elizabeth Park Report

Gort Scott and 5th Studio’s contribution to the Olympic Park Legacy, Pudding Mill Lane, has been featured in the NLA Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park: Living, Learning, Legacy report.

This new report examines the vision, purpose and challenges behind Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and spotlights projects which are integral to the ongoing Olympic Legacy and regeneration of East London.

Pudding Mill Lane is a long-term development set for completion in 2031, proposing a thriving new town centred around an overground station and providing 900 new homes, 40% of which will be affordable housing, and 36,000 sqm of employment space.

Local contexts have been a priority in designing Pudding Mill Lane, with thorough consultations taking place with local people and businesses, and workshops being organised with Local Youth Voice.

Upcoming Brent Cross Town Panel at London Real Estate Forum

Fiona Scott will be a part of Brent Cross Town, a panel at this year’s London Real Estate Forum. She will be in conversation about Related Argent Related and Brent Council’s upcoming regeneration of Brent Cross through the lens of LREF 2022. The long-term functionality of cities and urban spaces and what infrastructure and governance systems will underpin and co-ordinate them is up for consideration.

As a Mayor’s Design Advocate Fiona is closely involved in pioneering high street research, masterplanning and strategy projects. She works with developers and public authorities to support the evolution of places through design and integration with social and economic contexts.

Related Argent and Brent Council are working together to bring 6,700 homes and 3 million sq ft of office space to the new Brent Cross Town which will be set around 50 acres of parks and playing fields. With local park amenities being highly desirable, and 11 million of the working population within a 90-minute commute, demand for space at Brent Cross Town is high but what are the essentials needed to build a new town?

Sadie Morgan, Co-Founding Director, dRMM

Tom Goodall, Partner and Head of Residential, Related Argent

Matt Flood, Office Lead, Related Argent
