Architecture Initiative designs sixth-form scheme

Architecture Intiative's Langdon Park Sixth Form block

East London school expansion will sit on off-limits ecology site

Construction is due to start on an Architecture Initiative-designed sixth-form building created to cope with the growth in demand at an east London secondary school.

The 30-strong practice was commissioned to create the new three-storey structure for Langdon Park School by Tower Hamlets Schools and the London borough’s children’s services department. It is the latest of a handful of education commissions within the borough.

Architecture Initiative said its design for the new block had been inspired by the original 1907 school building and neighbouring homes.
