Wood Awards 2015: Structural Award

WINNER

Canary Wharf Crossrail

This project was singled out for the structural award from shortlisted entries across all categories because of the impressive 300m long spruce lattice roof that sits over a garden. This is the topmost layer of a development, otherwise largely retail, above the new Crossrail station. The judges admired the intelligent response to the varying levels of exposure (parts of the roof are open) as well as the way in which the structure was resolved.

Location: London
Architect: Foster + Partners
Structural engineers: Wiehag, se-austria (seele), Arup
Main contractor/builder: Canary Wharf Contactors
Timber: Spruce
