Phone hacking and architecture

A spokesman for Rupert Murdoch’s News International has assured Astragal that the shock closure of the News of the World will have no impact on the progress of Amanda Levete Architects’ large remodelling of the group’s headquarters in east London

That’s because the project, which includes a 33m-high ‘carved’ atrium and was approved in November 2009, is still on indefinite hold.

Intriguingly, embattled News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks is no stranger to the built environment, having worked temporarily on the architecture and art journal L’architecture d’Aujourd’hui in Paris.

Coincidentally, that title also closed in 2007, although it has since been resurrected by Jean Nouvel.
