Norman Foster, British Museum

The courtyard at the centre of the British Museum was one of London s long-lost spaces. Originally a garden, soon after its completion in the mid-nineteenth century it was filled by the round Reading Room and its associated bookstacks. Without this space the Museum was like a city without a park. This project is about its reinvention. With over five million visitors annually, the British Museum is as popular as the Louvre or the Metropolitan Museum of Art. However, in the absence of a centralised circulation system it was congested and difficult…

19th century British Architecture

The Industrial Revolution, underway by the middle of the 18th century and emerging first in England, is often cited as the single most important development effecting architecture in the modern world. The harnessing of coal and steam energy combined with new mechanized technologies and industrial materials, especially iron, steel and glass, brought sweeping changes throughout the fabric of society. Architectural commissions from ecclesiastical, royal and noble patrons were replaced by a new class of public authorities and private patrons, the leaders…

Royal College of Architecture

In 1958, the RCP bought Someries House in Regent’s Park with the intention of it being the site of a new headquarters. The house had been designed by John Nash (1752–1835) and sustained bomb damage during World War II. The Crown Estate Commissioners had no objection to its demolition, as long as the new building harmonised with the Regency architecture of the adjoining terraces and villas. The RCP president at the time, Sir Robert Platt (1900–1978), approached Sir John Summerson for advice on finding a suitable architect. Summerson, the curator…

Architecture Extension

Today at Hot Chips in Cupertino, I had the opportunity to present the latest update to our ARMv8-A architecture, known as the Scalable Vector Extension or SVE.

High Performance Scientific Compute provides an excellent focus for the…

Glass building London

London’s skyline has a new addition this week: the Walkie Scorchie. Joining the crowded group of glass protrusions, such as the Shard, the Gherkin, and the Cheesegrater, is 20 Fenchurch Street, which had previously been known as the Walkie Talkie, on account of it looking vaguely like a gigantic two-way radio. But the 37-storey office block, due to be completed next year, has gained a new sinister reputation: the death ray, the fryscraper, the Walkie Scorchie. Its south-facing concave facade conspires to concentrate and reflect the sun’s rays into…

British Victorian Architecture

Though new technology drove innovation in Victorian architecture, nostalgia was its keynote. Past eras were plundered for inspiration. Both watered-down Regency Classicism and the Greek Revival continued after Victoria came to the throne, but as her long reign wore on a battle of the styles developed. The Gothic Revival had a powerful grip on the imaginations of architects between 1855 and 1885. That still left room for a bewildering array of other borrowings from the past. Perhaps national pride encouraged an admiration for the architecture of…

A border terrier and an English pointer admire Drumstick Park by Robert Nicol. Mikael Buck/More Than British designer Dominic Wilcox is a master of the whimsical. His childlike imagination has created inventions such as a stained-glass driverless car and a helmet with a crane that serves cereal. He has brought children’s inventions and imaginary friends to life, and last weekend in London, he created a contemporary art exhibition for dogs. Dogs check out paintings that use a dog-friendly color spectrum palette. A border terrier jumps into a 10-foot…
