Making The Gantry

The Gantry


Introducing The Gantry


Drawing on the rich artistic heritage of Hackney Wick, The Gantry is a 21st century cabinet of curiosities made up of 21 individual creative studios. These studios are set within a gigantic gridded structure on the side of The Broadcast Centre at Here East facing Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Built using open-source technology, each studio is machine milled and arrives in a flatpack. On site, they are slotted together like a massive jigsaw before being lifted into place.  

This is the first build of its kind at this scale and we’re capturing the ongoing story, hearing first hand from the designers, coders, architects and builders as we find out the story behind this project and what it might mean for the future of construction and manufacturing.
