A View from The Bridge

Displayed on hoardings around our 5 Broadgate construction site are fantastic designs by 15 students from nearby Bridge Academy in Hackney.

Inspired by the theme ‘A sense of place’ and visualising their experiences of Broadgate, the artwork you see is a collage of their work.

5 Broadgate will provide the new headquarters for global financial services firm UBS, which has an award winning partnership with the Bridge Academy. 1,700 UBS volunteers have contributed 18,000 hours to the academy since 2003.

A View from The Bridge is a partnership project between the Bridge Academy, UBS and Broadgate’s owners British Land and Blackstone.

“The Bridge academy is a brilliant example of business working with their local community to make a difference and create something really special for their area. The innovative ideas, enthusiasm and skills of the UBS volunteers have had a clear impact on the Academy, inspiring students and helping them reach their potential.”

Rt. Hon. David Cameron, Prime Minister
