The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and Media Ten Ltd announce the winner of the chosen architect to design the new 'Ask An Expert' space at Grand Designs Live in London and Birmingham. The competition was open to all RIBA Members and RIBA Chartered Practices and was seeking to transform an empty space into an exciting area with an architectural feel.
Congratulations to Tony Broomhead, an award winning architect and founder of OS31. He has worked with communities and public bodies internationally to develop interactive and accessible architecture. He also teaches at the Sheffield School of Architecture specialising in lightweight design.
OS31 is a collaborative practice interested in responsive, adaptable and interactive architecture. The practice ethos is fundamentally about people and helping them engage with spaces.
The Ask An Expert courtyard aims to be a space for conversation and relaxation in the middle of the excitement of Grand Designs Live. The repetitive structure defines the space and creates a lively boundary which frees up the central space providing a place to take a breather. The hanging fabric follows the rhythm of the structure to give a soft edge to the space and defuse the ambient light.
Located in the heart of Grand Build, Ask An Expert sponsored by Express Bi-folding Doors offers a unique service designed to answer all of your project and self-build questions.
