As the scientific challenges of the future are constantly changing, our proposals for the White City Campus need to be flexible.

By creating new pedestrian routes and a large open space at the centre of the site, our draft masterplan identifies a number of areas for development.

Our proposals include two flexible ‘development zones’ and four distinct plots. Each development zone could have one large building, or several smaller buildings. The buildings within each zone will all relate to the central space at the heart of the campus.

By adopting a ‘development zones’ approach, we can set out the overall scale and use of future buildings, while retaining the flexibility to design the detail of the buildings to respond to new challenges and opportunities in science, engineering, business and medicine.

The height of most of the proposed buildings ranges from 6-14 storeys. Our draft proposals also include a tall building, which could be up to 32 storeys. There is already planning permission for a 32-storey building on the south site; we are currently exploring the possibility of moving this to the southernmost part of the site.
