Scope and Content

File documents a successful competition entry by the Foreign Office Architects for the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) Music Centre, White City, London, England. Their winning design for studios for the BBC Symphony Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra and BBC Singers was taken to the detailed design stage, but in 2008 the BBC cancelled the project after deciding to develop their presence in other areas of London.

The project brief had a total area of 11,000m2, with a budget of 25 million GBP, and the project was intended to be financed and constructed through the BBC's property partnership with Land Securities Trillium. The Foreign Office Architects worked with the consultants Adams Kara Taylor, Cameron Taylor Brady, and Davis Langdon & Everest. Material in this file was produced between 2002 and 2007.

File contains project documentation, design development drawings, plans, and an architectural model.
