Studio-P were invited back to Cubitt to give a talk to the Islington Eyes as part of the gallery's education programme in conjunction with the Building Exploratory. We talked them through the project, from our initial submission, procurement through to construction, as well as other Studio P projects past and present. Most enjoyable were the specific discussions around the importance of personal relationships - and a shared culture of flexibility - when delivering projects of this scale for a wide range of stakeholders. We will be back for more later in the year.

STUDIO P SHORTLISTED FOR THE OLD DOHA PRIZE November 2013
The British Council and Qatar Museums Authority, on behalf of Qatar UK 2013 Year of Culture, have confirmed our selection as one of the five shortlisted participants in the Old Doha Prize in Doha, Qatar, November 2013.
The Old Doha Prize is a competition that will bring together architects based in Britain and Qatar for a one week design charette, which will take place in Doha from 17-24 November 2013. The Old Doha Prize is organised in association with the Royal Institute for British Architects (RIBA) and The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL in the UK, as well as the Doha Architecture Centre and Msheireb Properties in Qatar.
The design charette will offer a chance for UK and Qatar based architects to collaborate, whilst building knowledge and international networks. Five teams will research and explore new ways to address the changing urban landscape of Old Doha.
The brief will focus specifically on the neighbourhoods of Al Asmakh and Najada in the heart of Old Doha and will be founded on the principle of Turath Al Hai (Living Heritage). This is the idea that heritage is not something set in history; rather something that continually evolves whilst remaining deeply rooted in the past.
