J & L Gibbons presented at the launch of the Van Alen Institute Ecologies of Addiction programme on the 28th of January in New York. This interdisciplinary research initiative into the complex relationship between addictive behaviors and the physical environment of the city is part of a first phase collaboration between the Van Alen and Imperial College’s Sustainable Society Network (SSN+). Our research team, a collaboration with King’s College and NOMAD, has been selected to investigate how a person’s vulnerability to addiction may be impacted by his or her environment

Phytology Human Nature Walk

As part of the 'Human-Nature' talks programme J & L Gibbons were asked by Phytology to guide a series of walks around various areas of London.

The 'walking talk' explored the micro and macro green infrastructure of London. Participants throughout the walk zoomed in on seemingly unremarkable ecological patchiness and set that in the context of strategic policy that secures nature as a vital component of the city environment, its liveability and economy.

Florey Building

J & L Gibbons as part of a team led by Avanti Architects have been selected as winners of a competition to redesign James Stirling’s iconic Florey Building of Queens College, Oxford.
The Florey Building, at 40 years old, is regarded as one of the great post-war modernist buildings in Britain.

The team's proposals will produce a massive qualitative improvement to the way the Florey Building is perceived and enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.The interventions proposed respect the essential significance of the listed heritage asset but also serve to retrieve and enrich it.
