Olympia London — west London’s 132 year-old entertainment venue — has announced a £1bn facelift.

Heatherwick Studio (of new Routemaster fame/infamy) and SPPARC worked on the bold designs, which have now been approved by Hammersmith & Fulham Council, and include:

  • 1,500-seat theatre
  • 1,000-seat performing arts venue
  • Two hotels
  • A four-screen cinema
  • 670,000 sq ft of creative office space, including new co-working space
  • Upgrades to the existing spaces to turn Olympia London into one of the world’s top exhibition and event centres
  • A 200,000 sq ft logistics centre

The transformation will be both a revamp of Henry Edward Coe’s glorious barrel-vaulted glasshouse, and the addition of surrounding buildings.

John Hitchcox, chairman of Yoo Capital, which owns Olympia London, has cited the project as a chance for London to catch up with some of the major shows its European counterparts boast — there is even talk of reviving the Festival of Britain.

Though there has been contention about the transformation from some locals, other groups, like The Hammersmith Society, have described it as “exciting” and “very positive”.

Olympia London hosts events including the BBC Good Food Show, the Great British Beer Festival and the National Wedding Show. Perhaps surprisingly, the venue has confirmed that it will remain open throughout the works, which are due to start early 2020.

One thing we WOULD ask of Heatherwick this time round: make sure some of the windows open this time.

If there’s a man in your life, or in the parental unit of your family, where does he sit in the stack of Christmas presents you have to buy? It saddens me that my great man, who I love, is now not the recipient of the first gifts in my basket, because, that’s now the kids. He’s not changed, and nor have I, so, why do men in your life become harder to buy presents for…

Dr. Martens will be launching their new Rick Griffin collection on Friday 1 February. It will be available from their store in Broadmead.

Rick Griffin

Artist and psychedelic poster designer, Rick Griffin is remembered for his staggering contribution to music artwork during the 60s and 70s. He quickly became intertwined with the rock-art scene and psychedelia, creating iconic imagery for Jimi Hendrix and bands like The Grateful Dead. Drawing on his comic and zine background, Rick’s work is a mash-up of lurid colours, melting text and surrealist characters.

Given their affinity with music and subcultures, it’s fitting Dr. Martens honour Rick Griffin’s legacy with this very special collection.

Rick Griffin

They’ve emblazoned their classic 1460 boots and a coordinating satchel with some of Rick’s most memorable illustrations including his iconic winged eyeball. This artwork fires up the already rebellious and alternative spirit of Docs.

About Dr.Martens

The first pair of Dr. Martens boots rolled off the production line of 1 April 1960. With its trademark yellow stitch, grooved sole and heel-loop, it was a boot for workers, initially worn by postmen and policemen; comfortable, durable and lightweight in comparison to its competitors at the time.

Throughout Dr. Martens history, the brand has been adopted and subverted by diverse individuals, musicians, youth cultures and tribes. These are the people who stand out from the crowd and their journey of self-expression has always been accompanied by a pair of DM’s.

The simple silhouette allows people to customise each pair; while on a utilitarian level their famous durability and comfort make them ideal footwear for the world of gigs and street fashion. On an emotional level, they are a flag of attitude and empowerment.

The Northamptonshire factory where it all began still exists to this day, in the village of Wollaston. A specific range of ‘Made in England’ products are manufactured here by a small, close-knit team of people schooled in traditional shoe-making and the unique process that makes Dr. Martens like no other shoe on earth.
