The London School of Architecture’s monthly Show and Tell asks leading figures to give an insight in to how they design. On Tuesday 20 October, 5th Studio’s Tom Holbrook joins architect and urbanist Deborah Saunt (DSDHA) and planner David West (Studio Egret West) to discuss the crafting of cities. The session will be chaired by London School of Architecture Director Will Hunter: See more here

This event, on September 5th, will bring together writers, historians, architects and economists to discuss the development of London’s periphery. Doughnut will be the first event of its kind – an adventurous celebration of all things Outer London and a critical reflection on the rapid transformation that the city’s periphery is currently experiencing.

Tom Holbrook will join Will Self, Hanif Kureishi, Gillian Darley, Ken Worpole, Ellis Woodman and Dutch historians Crimson Wouter & Michelle Provost among other speakers. Outside, businesses and artists from London’s periphery will be manning pop-up food stalls and staging music performances. This collaboration between the Architecture Foundation and the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich promises a great day out!

5th Studio is proud to be part of the Practice Network supporting the newly-launched London School of Architecture which opens in the autumn.

With fees of £6,000 a year, the school offers an alternative Part 2 route into the profession, and is designed to cut the cost of architecture education. Students spend half their time working in practice.

5th Studio’s Tom Holbrook is the school’s Leader of Urban Studies.

5th Studio has been shortlisted to design a new cultural quarter at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London, dubbed ‘Olympicopolis’. The practice is part of a team with Fielden Clegg Bradley Studios, DRDH, Coffey and David Kohn Architects, together with Expedition, Gardiner & Theobald and Atelier Ten. The project will establish new east London locations for The Victoria & Albert Museum, Sadler’s Wells, University of the Arts London (London College of Fashion) and a fourth institution yet to be confirmed.

More information on the project has appeared in The Guardian and from competition organiser, Malcolm Reading.
