Foster and Partners Stirling Prize entry 

In the building of the McLaren Technology Centre, Foster and Partners responded to a challenging brief to create a headquarters for the majority of the McLaren Group’s employees, previously scattered across 18 locations in and around the Woking area. Lord Foster, "McLaren came to us with a number of preconceptions – not so much about what the building should look like, but more about what the spirit of the building should be, its aspirations and its social generators.” The building’s 57,000 square metres of office space is home to the majority of the McLaren group’s 900 employees, in an area large enough to hold nine Boeing 747 jumbo jets.
