Azhar and Smith to design for Formula Zero

  • Comment
London-based Azhar and Smith Architects is to design all the grandstands, pavilions and racetracks for the new Formula Zero – the soon-to-be-launched zero-emissions motor-racing class.

One of the practice’s first jobs will be to draw up detailed plans for a demountable race track, media centre and re-useable facilities in Potters Fields, next to London’s Tower Bridge.

The event, in September, will be one of Formula Zero’s four international racing meets as part of the 2008 championship, which is open solely to hydrogen fuel-cell cars.

This year’s championship – which will also visit Rotterdam, Detroit and Dubai – will be battled out by teams from universities including UCLA in Los Angeles, Delft in the Netherlands, and London’s Imperial College.
