Timber Lodge and Tumbling Bay Playground wins New London Award
We are delighted that the Olympic Park North Hub and Playground has been awarded a New London Architecture Award in the Public Realm category!
We were hiring: very experienced part 2 architectural assistant/newly qualified part 3
We are not looking to fill a position. Instead we are looking for a person. A person who treasures our range of work as much as we do and wants to work across that range. We are proud of the variety of projects we do and how we do them. Please don't apply if you only want to work on buildings or in a set way. Due to the nature of our projects (often community based) many of them have unusual trajectories to get to a result. You have to be flexible and enjoy the journey. Enjoy talking to people, creating enthusiasm for a project and enabling users to participate in a meaningful way.
Our office is not big and everybody chips in with the everyday running of it. You should have initiative to participate and be able to spot what needs doing or sorting.
You must have the stated experience level. That is essential. We need somebody who can run a site and detail. You should be resilient enough to run several smaller size projects at the same time. Through all stages, self-sufficiently, with ideas.
If none of the above has put you off, you might just be the person we would love to work with.
If you are interested, please send your CV and samples of work to Susanne: st@erectarchitecture.co.uk.
AJ/iGuzzini Place: Light First
We were invited by the AJ to participate in their Place: Light First design challenge sponsored by iGuzzini. The brief was to come up with a proposal in which light is used as a primary design tool to enhance the spatial, aesthetic and temporal qualities of a space.

We imagined a scenario in Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens that ties in with our Promenade of Curiosities scheme for Vauxhall. A sculptural 'ribbon' of light and dark is suspended above the park, responding to people below by illuminating their promenade and drawing attention to pockets of activity within the park. We were paired up with lighting designer Colin Ball from BDP who suggested ways in which the scheme could be implemented. You can see more here...
