  • Comment

Former world champion Jacques Villeneuve and fellow Grand Prix driver Ricardo Zonta have helped open the British American Racing team's new Formula One hq. The £10 million 41,000m2 design near Silverstone by Ridge and Partners includes offices with restaurant and storage for vehicles.

General Motors, probably the world's biggest vehicle maker, has appointed an impressive design team to masterplan a £550 million technical centre. It includes San Francisco architects Kaplan McLaughlin Diaz and Arup Consulting Engineers. Gensler will do interiors, Hargreaves Associates landscaping and BCA historic preservation. Plans include an 180,000m2 car plant and renovation of the post-war Eero Saarinen campus.
