Weave's LEGO city takes gold!

Weave's LEGO city takes gold!

Team Studio Weave and our army of helpers took home the trophy at the London Architecture Festival's Lego Challenge last week. Hosted at the Royal Academy we had just 1 hour 45 minutes to transform 15,000 bricks into 'a template for a creative city'. Begining with an 'ancient city wall' our scheme sprawled outside the confines of our alloted 2m square into the adjacent fireplaceOur multi coloured metropolis and infrastructure of monorails attracted more and more budding architects to the team and their eclectic creations helped us to use all 15,000 of our bricks!

Feedback from the Judges was that they 'like rule-breakers'

Studio Weave joins forces with 00

2nd June: Today Studio Weave and 00 [zero zero] announced that they are joining forces. This builds on a long-standing friendship between individuals in both organisations and a desire to work more closely together. The practices, widely celebrated for their respective achievements, have chosen to jointly develop a structure that will allow them to openly share their unique and complementary experience.


Combining their strengths and approaches, Studio Weave, Architecture00, Civic Systems Lab, Do Laboratories, and Wikihouse (among others) will form a new Trust, providing a common platform to underpin their collaborations. The growing team will use the sum of their expertise to deliver a diverse range of projects including the design of neighbourhoods, public spaces, creative workplaces, health and education environments, user-led housing, local economic development, social investment, and research into all aspects of the built environment.
