Our 2023 Highlights

What a year it’s been for our team.

2023 has been a particularly rewarding one for us, as many of our long-term projects finally became a reality. We’ve also had the opportunity to travel to awards ceremonies, design festivals and work in each other’s offices to experience the country and local culture.

As we approach the end of another landmark year, we’re looking back on our highlights…

Active Travel in London

The number of cyclists in London has increased by 20% since the pandemic.

In Transport for London’s recently published Travel in London report new data suggests that “investment in London’s cycle network is enabling more people to cycle”.

Unlocking the potential for better health, lower pollution, and safer streets, walking and cycling active travel initiatives can act as creative catalysts for healthy, vibrant and social cities and neighbourhoods.

We’re excited to be working with local councils and Business Improvement Districts next year on a range of new pedestrian wayfinding projects around London and further across the UK, including Stratford, Aldgate, Greenwich Peninsula, Blackpool, and Northampton Town Centre. These schemes will encourage smooth transitions with expansive cycle networks which connect to further sustainable transport modes, nurturing inclusive social values and giving people the freedom to explore their local communities.

We look forward to seeing the conversations about #activetravel in the UK continue in 2024.

2023 World Architecture Festival

Huge congratulations to the team on another win for the Elizabeth Line.

At the World Architecture Festival in Singapore last week the Elizabeth Line won for Completed Buildings: Transport. The award recognised the collaboration between Grimshaw, AtkinsRéalis, EQUATION Lighting Design and Maynard.

This landmark project has laid the foundation for our team to continue applying the line-wide design principles in our work around the world.
