Cricket architecture in the AJ Buildings Library

  • Comment

To mark England’s victory over India at the Oval yesterday, the AJ Buildings Library looks at nine pieces of great British cricket architecture

The Library features images, drawings and data for the beautiful, minimalist Martyrs Pavilion, Oxford by John Pawson (2009) and the colourful recent additions to three Test grounds: - The Point, Old Trafford, Manchester by BDP (2010); Carnegie Pavilion, Headingley, Leeds by Alsop Sparch (2010); and Edgbaston Cricket Stadium, Birmingham by AFL Architects (2011).

Lord’s, The home of cricket, merits three separate entries: the Media Centre by Future Systems (1999); Grand Stand by Grimshaw (1998); and Mound Stand by Hopkins Architects (1987).

Alongside schemes at these large grounds, the AJ Buildings Library also features smaller pavilions such as the Stirling County Cricket Club by jmarchitects, and hundreds of 20th century buildings from the AJ archives, including the Cricket Pavilion at East Moseley by Basil Ward (1955).
