In London City Island, a peninsula on the Thames, close to Canning Town Underground Station, the new home of the English National Ballet, whose artistic director is the Spanish ballerina Tamara Rojo, is a large cube whose skin of translucent white glass strikes a contrast with its colorful neighbors. Large windows open the building onto a square, inviting passers-by into the ground floor, where there is a café. A sculptural staircase in this atrium space rises to all the levels. The building harbors a production studio (with a 25-meter-tall fly tower) that doubles as a public auditorium, bright rehearsal spaces, ateliers where stage sets are built and costumes are designed, and staff offices. Among the accolades earned by this Mulryan Centre for Dance are the RIBA London Award 2021, the RIBA London Building of the Year 2021, and the RIBA National Award 2021.
