Future Systems to design News International HQ

  • Comment
Future Systems has been appointed to design a new corporate campus for media group News International, which owns the Sun and The Times newspapers, in Wapping, East London.

The project, for News Corporation, will bring together News International, Harper Collins, MySpace, Dow Jones, Fox and related businesses under one roof for the first time, and will transform the Wapping offices and printworks (pictured) into a 'dynamic and inspiring' 21st-century workplace.

Future Systems principal Amanda Levete said: 'It’s an enormous privilege to be given such an ambitious brief; to create an environment to capture the energy and spirit of an organisation at the forefront of global communications.

'The people who make up News Corporation in London are central to the design. I want the building to reflect their values, the individuality of their businesses and the dynamic way in which they work. It’s my desire to create for them one of the most exciting office spaces in the world.'

James Murdoch, News Corporation chairman and chief executive for Europe and Asia, said: 'We're delighted to have Future Systems as partners on this project.

'Amanda and her team have an exciting and innovative vision for the space at Wapping, and have dug into the brief with enthusiasm. Their approach focuses on people and the way we interact, and reflects a deep commitment to understanding the culture and ambition of News Corporation. We want it to be a very compelling place to work.'
