contributed by David_Chipperfield

The new BBC headquarters encompasses all aspects of television, radio and internet, accommodating production facilities, digital studios, technical support and office space. It encourages creative interaction between the 1000 occupants by connecting all workspaces with a central rising atrium that acts as a central meeting room. Located alongside the abandoned Govan docks on an exposed plot of land dominated by the expanse of the river Clyde and the mountains of the Scottish Highlands. Faced with this open landscape, the building had to find ways to establish its own sense of place and satisfy the demands of the BBC for a contained yet publicly accessible building. The central atrium is configured as a tiered sequence of platforms and terraces. Circulation and communication through the building and between office floors is promoted by this giant staircase, which offers informal meeting areas and encourages movement between spaces.
