An RIBA competition winner, this building reflects the values of the LSE. The project provides unconventional and inspiring teaching spaces including a new prototype LSE-style lecture theatre and collaborative departmental space. A substantial new public square improves wayfinding and connectivity, making a much-needed focal point at the heart of the campus. Teaching facilities and informal student learning and breakout spaces are connected by a single sculptural academic stair while a collaborative stair above second floor defines the geometry of the facade. Highly sustainable, the building achieves a BREEAM Outstanding rating.
