Zaha Hadid wins planning for ‘breakthrough’ UK project

Vauxhall Cross by Zaha Hadid Architects

Vauxhall towers replace ditched Squires scheme

Zaha Hadid Architects has won planning for two huge towers on the Vauxhall gyratory in south London.

The project, which features two buildings of 53 and 42 storeys connected by a 10-storey podium, will require the demolition of Arup’s “ski jump” bus station as part of a land swap.

It will be built between what is currently Wandsworth Road, Parry Street, Bondway and Vauxhall Bus Station – in the middle of the Vauxhall Gyratory, which is due to be redesigned.
