Allies & Morrison and Woods Bagot unveil Bishopsgate tower
Architects collaborated using bim
100 Bishopsgate, an office development designed by Allies and Morrison and Woods Bagot for the City of London, has been launched at Mipim.
The 88,000sq m scheme features a 40-storey tower and two other buildings separated by 0.2ha of public realm.
It won planning after design revisions at the end of last year but will not be built until it has been pre-let by joint developers Great Portland Estates and Brookfield Office Properties.
The two architects, collaborating as AMWB, used bim software to coordinate the detailed design across the three key disciplines.
Earle Arney, a director at Woods Bagot, said: “The resulting design is extraordinary in the context of the Square Mile as it not only provides ‘clean-skin’ cores within large, regular floor plates, but also creates a new public place that serves to lift the spirit and enhance the urban fabric of the City of London.”
