The Architecture Foundation (AF) has announced it will defer plans to build new headquarters, concentrating instead on expansion plans with the help of a major donation.

The announcement follows news that plans to build a £5m Zaha Hadid-designed scheme in Southwark, London, were dropped after difficulties over agreeing a tender.

The building would have provided exhibitions, event spaces and administrative offices for the foundation.

The AF board says it would be not be proceeding with a new building under current conditions but will instead use a £250,000 donation from a private donor to help support its future programme.
