NORD completes first building for 2012 Olympic site
[FIRST LOOK] Glasgow-based NORD has created this black-brick sub-station for the 2012 Olympic Games site in East London
The sub-station houses three huge transformers for client, electricity supplier, EDF Energy.
The practice was actually appointed on the scheme by the Olympic Delivery Authority in 2007 and asked to ‘develop a strong contextual approach to a key utility building within the Olympic Park’.
According to the architects: ‘The building is not designed as an event in its own right but as part of a number of buildings that form the fabric of the Olympic site itself; having permanency, weight and dignity.’
