22 Bishopsgate, designed by PLP Architecture for AXA IM – Real Assets and Lipton Rogers Developments, is the tallest tower at the heart of the City of London’s financial district. Shaped to respect townscape views, its twenty-three-sided, faceted glass form makes a strong and serene backdrop to the surrounding articulated towers and to the historic fabric of the Bank of England Conservation Area.
Arbor is a hub for interaction, creativity, and inspiration in the heart of London, located in the hypermixed, fossil-fuel free Bankside Yards masterplan. It plays a vital role in shaping a 24-hour cultural neighbourhood that blends work and city life, art and technology, culture and nature. The building’s goal is to provide a one-of-a-kind workplace surrounded and activated by 8 diverse public spaces, 3 cultural areas, 14 arches with wellness programs and social activities, and 5-star hospitality; all of which links into London’s cultural network along the Thames’ South Bank cultural quarter.

Dubbed ‘The 9th City of Delhi’, AeroCity is set to become India’s first sustainable Transit Oriented Development with over 30 million square feet of mixed-use commercial development and a working population of over 100,000. Capitalising on its proximity to the Delhi International Airport, AeroCity will cover over 230 hectares creating an active commercial hub representing the largest planned development in India’s capital since Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker planned New Delhi in the early 20th century. Perhaps more importantly, AeroCity is planned with a civic vision and a commitment to the public realm that characterise successful mixed-use developments globally.
Number 4 Cannon Street is situated between three listed buildings of extremely high quality. To the east sits Bracken House, Sir Albert Richardson’s eccentric exemplar of modern classicism and one of the City’s best post-war buildings. To the south is St Nicholas Cole Abbey by Christopher Wren, the first of London’s spires to be rebuilt after the great fire and now used as an evangelical workplace ministry with a popular daytime café in the nave. Directly to the north is St Paul’s Cathedral and Festival Gardens. Perhaps more than any other building we have completed, our spatial and material design approach has been directly informed by its adjacencies – not only as a setting for Wren’s landmark cathedral, but in relationship to its other neighbours and public spaces.

PLP Architecture was commissioned to refurbish the former Unilever Tower in Milan as a contemporary office space. The tower, built in 1962, had been a modernist landmark in the international style, although a recent misplaced attempt at recladding the facade had completely changed its character, rendering it unremarkable and undervalued. The existing block and surrounding buildings had become run-down, in stark contrast to the surrounding buildings of Corso Como. When complete, the building will serve as Accenture’s national headquarters. A new all-timber pavilion adjacent to the tower will house the headquarters for the technology company Bending Spoon.
