Our sponsor and partners
This voluntary project could only be undertaken with sponsorship. We are extremely grateful to S+P Architects for their support. Indeed, as leading international sports and leisure architects they are the perfect partner for the Leisure industry stalwart S+P has a long association with sports & leisure design. Recent projects include the London 2012 Olympic Aquatics Centre, and the Abu Dhabi Sports Village. S+P has designed numerous sports and leisure centres over the last 30 years, ranging from Coral Reef, Bracknell to K2 in Crawley. S+P designed the UK’s most environmentally aware Sports Centre, the St. Sidwells Centre, in Exeter.
Space & Place’s origins grew out of Gillinson, Barnett & Partners (designers in 1976/77 of Europe’s largest public leisure centre, Crowtree, Sunderland). Their successors, Sargent and Potiriadis, were pre-eminent leisure architects in the 1970s and 1980s, as are Space & Place today.
BAQUS kindly agreed to support the ‘Architects Choice’ section. CIMSPA supported the Project from the outset and has now taken over managing the website.
