St Pancras, London
The Francis Crick Institute, just to the west of St Pancras International Staion in London. The building, designed by architects HOK with PLP Architecture, opened in 2016. “The Francis Crick Institute is an extraordinary example of collaborative work. Our role was to establish the architectural expression of the building, lifting it to the status of a major civic institution, linking the Crick to other nearby landmarks and creating a world class centre for interdisciplinary research.” (Wayne McKiernan, Director at PLP Architecture). The Crick has cost 700 million pounds, and will house more than a thousand scientists, working in the field of biomedics. On the right is 'Padadigm' a sculpture by Conrad Shawcross. Fourteen metres high, Paradigm is a twisting stack of tetrahedral blocks made of weathering steel, made by the London based fabricators Benson-Sedgwick.
