East Bank, Stratford

This time I didn’t take the bus. I took the train straight to Stratford, then walked around with the camera until I found the new development for the cultural East Bank, sandwiching together the new quarters for the BBC, Sadler’s Wells, UAL’s London College of Fashion, University College London and the V&A.

The QEOP official website informs: East Bank is the UK’s newest Cultural Quarter at the heart of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park; a brand-new destination for innovation, creativity and learning.  East Bank will complement London’s major cultural and education centres, such as the South Bank, the cluster of museums and academic institutions in South Kensington and the Knowledge Quarter around King’s Cross and Bloomsbury. East Bank is supported by the Mayor of London and partly funded by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.

Designed by Allies and Morrison, with O’Donnell and Tuomey architects.

“Anish Kapoor’s big red tower remains a spectacular eyesore, but 10 years on from the 2012 Games, the old railway lands of Stratford are a largely thriving new urban district that few other host cities can rival.” says The Guardian
