FACULTY BUILDING, IMPERIAL COLLEGE LONDON Foster and Partners Client: Imperial College London The first reaction to this ink-blue building, with its apparent simplicity of form, is of a mix of shock and pleasant surprise. The impact of its strong colour and simple geometry goes a long way to humanising an otherwise dreary and - in both senses of the word - pedestrian space.

£10 million. 4,800m

HOME OFFICE HEADQUARTERS Terry Farrell & Partners Client: Anne's Gate Property Terry Farrell's new Home Office Headquarters represents a quiet piece of urbanism. Although a PFI-delivered scheme, the value engineers were content to leave the impressive screen by Liam Gillick, which gives the facade its character.

£311 million. 71,830m

ASPREY, LONDON Foster and Partners Client: Asprey & Garrard The key space that unites the shop is the backyard of the five listed buildings. By using these previously unplanned spaces to create a glass-roofed courtyard, the individual buildings are appreciated, a focal point is created and circulation routes are made legible.

Cost confidential. 930m
