Masterplanner sought for UCL Olympic Park campus

  • Comment

The London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) is on the hunt for an architect to masterplan a new campus for University College London (UCL) on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

Dubbed ‘University Quarter’, the 125,000m2 development will occupy two sites close to the ‘Olympicopolis’ district which is subject to a separate design contest.

Stanton Williams was appointed to complete a visioning exercise for the development earlier this year shortly after UCL walked from plans for a £1 billion campus on the nearby Carpenters Estate.

Stephen Caddick, UCL vice-provost for enterprise, said: ‘We are now moving into the next stage of the process for establishing a presence on the Olympic Park site and we’re now looking to build a team which can help us realise our vision.’

He added: ‘We are fortunate at UCL to have on our staff some of the world’s foremost expert on architecture and design and urban planning – they will have a key role in shaping the brief and subsequent plans for the new campus as they develop.’

The masterplan will deliver new academic facilities, 30,000m2 of student accommodation and a ‘museum of the future’ on two sites to the south of the ArcelorMittal Orbit and Zaha Hadid’s London Aquatics Centre.

Shortlisted teams will submit formal tenders this month and a winner will be announced in March.

LLDC chief executive David Goldstone said: ‘It’s great to embark on this latest phase of the Olympicopolis project which will see the creation of a new campus in east London for one of the world’s top 5 universities.’

The deadline for requests to participate is 24 November.
