In this month’s FX:
Overbury’s Joe Huddleston, opines the successful workplace will be one creating an environment for workers of all ages, in Talking Points, as more older people enter the workplace.
We also take a look at the Heritage Lottery Fund and some of the architecture and design projects it has chosen to back with funds. From a train roundhouse to a ruin of a castle that’s now a holiday rental, Veronica Simpson uses her Brief Encounters column to report from Oldham, the location of the latest Maggie’s Centre, designed by dRMM.
We’re also off to the National Army Museum, in London, for our Client File. The museum has just gone through a major overhaul with the help of BDP, and we speak to the assistant director of public programmes about the new-look museum and what it looks for when selecting design firms to work with it.
And Hewitt Studios surprised us at FX Towers with the news that its If Only feature, which appeared in 2013 about its dream of an environmental research centre, has come true!
All this and much more!
