Employment Academy by Peter Barber Architects

The Employment Academy is a state of the art training and advice centre in Southwark. It is set up to offer skills training and support services for long term workless people with the intention of helping them back into sustainable employment.

In 2009 PBA were approached by the charity Thames Reach to make a proposal for the refurbishment and substantial extension of ET Hall’s magnificent late Arts & Craft Poor Law Guardian’s building in Camberwell, South East London.

Very few architects design to the scale that Carlos Scarpa did. Maybe it is a product of the times or people just do not appreciate that scale of design anymore. It will be hard pressed for another like Scrapa to emerge in this floor-space-ratio contemporary architecture world.
