Tumbling Bay Playground

Designing play areas where learning is inevitable LUC and erect architecture were asked to deliver a brand new “play, leisure and learning experience of international renown” in the northern Olympic Park in Stratford.

Oxford Brookes University

A multiple-award-winning public realm. The £134m redevelopment of Oxford Brookes University’s Headington Campus embodies the spirit of the university’s transformative ‘Space to Think’ initiative.
