British Airways i360 Wins RIBA National Award

We are thrilled to announce that the British Airways i360 has been honoured with an RIBA National Award. The scheme was awarded for its ”conceptual ambition and the extent of innovation and originality.”

The jury thought that ”the research and the development exhibited in the design of the double curved ‘oblate ellipsoid’ and in the design of the world’s most slender tower, with a height-to-width ratio of more than 40:1, should be commended.”

They felt there was ”a sense of delight in the way the pod emerges from the bowels of the earth, which can be enjoyed by passers-by.”
