Will Alsop’s RIBA award-winning Blizard Building completed in 2005 has been such a huge success that the Queen Mary University commissioned aLL to design an extension to the building. The Blizard Building was developed with channeled information from detailed client consultation workshops and resulted in a transparent box which reveals the university research inside.
