The Plaice team visited the Renzo Piano: The Art of Making Building exhibition held at the Royal Academy of Arts in London.

The exhibition followed Piano’s career, from the influence of his Genoese heritage and his rise to acclaim alongside friend and collaborator Richard Rogers, to current projects still in the making. Focusing on 16 key buildings, it explores how the Renzo Piano Building Workshop (RPBW) designs buildings “piece by piece”, making deft use of form, material and engineering to achieve a precise and yet poetic elegance.

On view were rarely seen drawings, models, photography, signature full-scale maquettes and a new film by Thomas Riedelsheimer that showed how inspiring architecture is made. At the centre of the exhibition was an imagined ‘Island’, a specially designed sculptural installation which brought together nearly 100 of Piano’s projects.

Plaice have successfully sought planning approval for a new mixed use development in the centre of Felixstowe, Suffolk.

The site, a former auction house will make way for three ground floor commercial units with street frontage, under croft parking and cycle storage along with nine two bedroom flats, maximising the sites potential. The principal design feature is the first floor external courtyard which forms access to the residential units.

The application received favourable comments, stating that “it will enhance the streetscene and townscape through its well considered form, modelling, choice of materials, architectural styling and overall quality. This will ensure that the design is complementary to the surrounding streets that are within the conservation area, in terms of its high standard of design.”

Our client is seeking offers from interested parties to build out the proposal.
