Wilkinson Eyre Architects has revealed plans for a new foyer for the School of Mathematical Sciences at Queen Mary, University of London
The new pavilion wraps around the base of the existing 10-storey 1960s maths building on the Mile End Road in East London. It will also provide a new gateway to the western approach to the Queen Mary campus from Stepney Green tube station.
The design features a mathematical Penrose tiling pattern to generate the folding form of the façade.
Stafford Critchlow, Director, Wilkinson Eyre Architects, ‘This is a great opportunity to recast the western approach to the Queen Mary campus, to improve the staff and student experience of the Mathematics building and to raise the profile of the discipline within the University offer appropriate to its international reputation for research.’
A full planning application has been submitted to Tower Hamlets.
