Designs that achieve a balance between the man-made environment and the natural world.

BDP Pattern is the sports and entertainment division of BDP, a global architecture and engineering practice with a network of studios across the UK, EMEA, Asia, North America and Latin America. Pattern was founded by Dipesh Patel in 2009 and became part of the BDP group in 2021.

Our ethos is to create designs that achieve a balance between the man-made environment and the natural world. We are interested in projects that enhance the user experience by addressing well-being and visual harmony whilst optimising parametric design to create complex structures that can respond to local context and elements. Data analysis and computation enable us to invent stadia that can mitigate hot climates or provide wind assisted high performing environments for athletes. Whereas our creative design talents ensure we deliver memorable places where people come together to share a sporting experience.

Every project we bring together an interdisciplinary team of architects, urban designers, technologists and designers who have expertise in sports and entertainment buildings, sports masterplanning, hospitality and revenue analysis. This highly collaborative approach has resulted in elegant architectural forms, detailed planning and highly technical design solutions for our clients.

Partnerships are a cornerstone of our success. Creating a dynamic, integrated team with our clients and fellow consultants ensures together we can deliver projects that are innovative, culturally specific, financially sustainable and respectful to the environment.
