Paul Hyett, PPRIBA, Hon. FAIA
Principal, UK Sports Director

 “A microcosm of life… our experiences in terms of riches, tragedy, joy and heartache are played out week by week in the arena and on the pitch. No other building genre offers the creative architect such intensity of experience, such raw emotion or such sublime opportunity as a super-charged sports project. This is the ultimate in team experience.”
