Studying the classics

What are the Elgin Marbles doing on a housing block in London’s Olympic Village? That was the question on the cover of Autumn’s issue of Concrete Quarterly, which I edit for UBM and The Concrete Centre. The magazine’s lead article covered Niall McLaughlin Architects’ very striking facade for the athletes’ accommodation in Stratford. Continuing the visual concrete theme, we also featured a surprisingly attractive sewerage pumping station elsewhere on the Olympic Park, a dazzlingly white court building in Portugal, and David Chipperfield’s purple-grey Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield.
