Chobham Academy

Conceived pre-Olympics and used during the 2012 Games (both as a gym and a security hub), Chobham Academy continues to work hard as a linchpin educational and civic campus on the eastern edge of one of Europe’s largest regeneration projects. The all-ages school specialises in literature and the performing arts and serves the established local communities of Leyton and Stratford and the emerging community of the post-Games Park. A powerful drum form centres three connected buildings that define space on a campus that is open, economical and sustainable.
