Rogers and Foster suffer as Spain feels pinch

  • Comment

The global economic crisis continues to play havoc with the architecture profession, as two of the UK’s biggest firms face losing work on key projects in Spain

According to the Guardian, projects for both Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and Foster + Partners are facing cancellation or stalling as developers struggle to secure capital.

Work has stopped on Rogers’ planned transformation of Barcelona’s 19th-century Las Arenas bullring due to unpaid bills. The proposal was to see the bullring turned into a leisure and shopping centre.

The report added that Foster + Partners’ £230 million remodelling of the Camp Nou for Barcelona Football Club is also believed to be delayed indefinitely, as construction slows down across the city and real estate prices fall sharply.
