Avery Associates The £12 million IMAX cinema near London's Waterloo Station was designed by Avery Associates for the British Film Institute and opened in May 1999. Built on a sunken traffic island on one of the main routes into London, the building was conceived as a garden 'oasis' within the bleak concrete environment of the South Bank. Matthew Teague, principal architect in the Corus Construction Centre, and AJ editor Isabel Allen visited Bryan Avery to find out how the building has survived its first seven years.
