Think Place bags high-profile Polish project

  • Comment
Think Place, the masterplanning practice set up by former Terry Farrell design director Garry Colligan (pictured), has pulled off a major coup after winning a huge urban planning project in Poland.

The East London based firm beat masterplan specialists from around the globe to land the key regeneration scheme in central Warsaw.

Backed by Polish-Irish private equity fund Global Partners Investment, the project will see the redevelopment of a 22ha site around Polish Sport Club SKRA’s 26,000-seat football stadium.

As well as creating a 12ha urban park, there are also plans for an aquatic sports centre, two museums, hotels, apartments and a office district.

It is hoped the scheme, which Colligan likens to creating ‘a new urban quarter built as a paradigm of Urban Ecology’, will be completed in time to be used during the 2012 European Football Championships, being held in Poland and Ukraine.

Think Place has already earmarked Polish architect Stefan Kurylowicz and SOM for key buildings within the masterplan.

However it is understood they could be opportunities for more British practice to be handed schemes as the proposals progress.

The masterplan will be presented to the city authorities at the end of January.
