In this sense, the agency of architecture can be understood as a catalyst for creating alternatives for the built environment, and there are as many ways of doing so as there are ways of practicing architecture: from research to urban interv...</p> http://archinect.com/firms/release/16216506/the-curve-completes-in-the-heart-of-slough/149986937 The Curve completes in the Heart of Slough Archinect 2017-01-17T10:42:00-05:00 >2017-01-18T12:07:26-05:00 <p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/xc/xcgz7wahfdiqmoth.jpg"></p><p>A dynamic team of architects, designers and consultants are celebrating the completion of the &pound;22m cultural hub project,&nbsp;<strong>The Curve,</strong>&nbsp;located in the centre of Slough, Berkshire, UK.
