AJ100 'Building of the Year' Award May 19, 2011
Following on from last year's success with our design for Kroon Hall at Yale University, the Practice once again won the AJ 100 'Building of the Year' award, this time for the Olympic Velodrome.
Described by juror Patrick Schumacher of Zaha Hadid Architects as "a near perfect synthesis of form and function".
"The velodrome's lovely shape acts as a marker for the north end of the Olympic Park. Beautifully sited, beautifully made and beautifully detailed." Frank Duffy
