Manchester, United Kingdom
Jeremy Deller and Caruso St John Architects have collaborated on the design for the memorial to the Peterloo Massacre in central Manchester.
Construction completed in time for the 200th anniversary of the massacre, which occurred on 16th August 1819. Events to mark the anniversary will be taking place on the square next to the memorial on Friday 16th August, as well as over the weekend. The memorial itself has been opened without ceremony, in acknowledgement of Manchester City Council’s continuing discussion with local access groups about improving access.

Caruso St John has won the contest for a new office building at 52-56 Stampfenbachstrasse in central Zurich. The building, for multinational insurance company AXA, houses flexible office spaces on the upper floors and retail space on the ground floor.
Construction has completed on the Falconhoven Apartment Building in central Antwerp. The building contains fifty-one apartments, as well as shops, offices, and a kindergarten, and is the first completed building in a city block designed in collaboration with Flemish architects Bovenbouw and ONO Architectuur, and Dutch architects Rapp + Rapp.
Caruso St John's project for a new office building adjacent to the Hardbrücke viaduct in Zurich West will be completed at the end of November. Works to the office interiors and planting in the cantilevered balconies are complete, and ground floor retail units are currently being finished. Tenants will occupy the building early in the new year.
Construction continues on the Swiss Life Arena, the new home for the ZSC Lions ice hockey team, and Caruso St John's largest project to date. The in situ concrete exposed shell of the building is currently being built and the project is set to complete in 2022.

The school year has started at Neuhausen am Rheinfall's newly refurbished primary school. Caruso St John's project to refurbish and extend the exiting building is the first part of a larger urban scheme that includes a new town hall, market place, main fire station, and a range of housing for families and the elderly.
In the referendum of 27 September, almost 60% voted in favor of plans for the development of Hardtrum Areal in Zurich West.
The development, for clients Credit Suisse, HRS Real Estate, and Zurich housing co-operative ABZ, comprises a 18,000 seat stadium, an apartment building with 174 co-operative apartments, and two 137-metre mixed-use towers. The design is a collaboration with Zurich-based practices, Bolthauser Architekten and Pool Architekten.
Newport Street Gallery, the conversion of almost an entire street of listed industrial buildings in south London into a free public gallery for artist Damien Hirst’s private art collection, has won the coveted 2016 RIBA Stirling Prize for the UK’s best new building.
