Feilden+Mawson's design for a new Parliamentary Education Centre in Victoria Tower Gardens has been given planning go ahead. The scheme has been designed in accordance with Parliament's brief for a dedicated education centre that will accommodate and increase the number of school children visiting the Palace of Westminster from 45,000 a year in 2012/13 to 100,000 per year. Feilden+Mawson's proposal for the Education Centre was designed in conjunction with Kim Wilkie, a renowned landscape architect, as a building that is part of the landscape setting of the Palace of Westminster.

Alan Robson and Charles Curry-Hyde are delighted with the approval of planning in this sensitive area, on a World Heritage Site. They have welcomed the opportunity to work with Kim Wilkie to find opportunities to enhance the park for the benefit of the public and help fulfil Parliament's commitment to increasing education visitor numbers to the Palace.
