Bow School, old and new, London, – Jul 2014
The old school was a ramshackle building where kids had to be bussed out of Tower Hamlets to play sport, couldn’t do drama and dance because of a lack of space. The school site now has rooftop sports facilities overlooking the Thames, an assembly hall that doubles up as a 350-seat theatre, and has won praise from the Tate’s Nicholas Serota for its architectural design.
