Inspired by creating clear lines of communication between architect, design and the public, ‘Five by Five’ refers to a signal that has excellent strength and perfect clarity – the most understandable signal possible.
It features drawings and models of recent works grouped according to five principles: evolution and revolution, natural consequences, 5-D geometry, tuning in and integration.

The Hurlingham Club Outdoor Pool – 30 Jun 2012
RIBA Awards 2012 Winner
The Outdoor Pool was commissioned to replace a pool complex started 80 years ago, now dilapidated but still much loved by its members.
The new changing room building is larger than the original and adopts an elongated tear shape; it has long horizontal proportions, blue painted clap-board walls with white doors and pool accessories such as the large clock and life-saving rings.
This reinterpretation of a traditional lido building is however given additional interest by the new roof which is made up of a series of elegant metal clad vaults which float at a constant height above clerestorey glazing.
