Dance studio set for new home in revamped Olympic broadcast centre

  • Comment

‘Anonymous’ architectural practice We Not I has revealed designs for a new studio for choreographer Wayne McGregor as part of the revamp of the broadcast centre at the Olympic park

The employees and directors of the ‘virtual’ practice say on their website that they want to remain nameless in ’reaction to the vogue for architect-as-celebrity’. 

The proposed new space within the Hawkins\Brown-designed refurbishment of the former London 2012 broadcast centre will include three dance studios and will act as a home for McGregor’s own dance company.

The dance studio is set to be the first arts organisation to move into the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park when it relocates there later this year,.

It will be joined in the building by BT Sport, Loughborough University, Hackney Community College and the Bartlett.

Wayne McGregor, said: ‘Studio Wayne McGregor is a mixing house for creators and inventors of art, inside an inspiring collection of studios and functional work spaces. Art forms cross paths with technological innovation, experience with enthusiasm, doers with thinkers. As you can see, it will be an extraordinary physical space to share, dedicated to generating a lively nexus of new relationships and exchanges.’

Here East chief executive Gavin Poole, added: ‘The new designs for the world-class studios fit with our vision for each tenant’s space to reflect their own individuality and creativeness, while complementing Here East’s innovative architecture and design.’
