A team led by Page & Park Architects has been approved for the restoration of the Glasgow School of Art's Mackintosh Building which was destroyed by fire last spring. The appointment was announced March 31, 2015. The design team will lead the project, following presentations by a shortlist of five leading practices earlier this month.

Page \ Park undertook a detailed analysis of the construction of a bay from the Mackintosh Library, including the creation of an accurate scale model, to answer the question “what do we know about the library that will enable us to do a successful reconstruction?”

Five architectural firms are on the shortlist to design the Louvre’s new storage facility, planned to open near the museum’s satellite in Lens, northern France. Corinne Vezzoni & Assoc and Zig Zag architecture, both from France, Neutelings Riedijk Architecten from the Netherlands, Roger Stirk Harbour + Partners from the UK and Estudio Arquitectura Baeza from Spain were chosen from 173 applicants.

In September 2013, then-minister of culture Aurélie Filippetti announced that the Louvre would move works held in a basement storage area on the banks of the River Seine due to the risk of flooding.
