Francis Crick Institute, King's Cross. Designed by architects @hoknetwork with @plparchitecture , and developed with input from scientists, local residents and community groups, the building supports the goals of the institute and promotes public engagement.
Architecturally, there are strong links between the new institute and the historic buildings in the local area. Both the masonry and the distinctive vaulted roof recall features of the adjacent St Pancras International station.
Pick up the latest New London Quarterly to read a feature on @transportforlondon 's Stuart Robinson at p.16, the 'New Londoner' chosen for NLQ issue 39, who was key to the creation of @thefranciscrickinstitute , as well as a 'Top of their Game' feature on HOK at p.32, the architect responsible for the building. - 2 hours ago
