Look's like David Chipperfield has his work cut out at the LSE, where he has just won a competition to redesign a massive new building the school has bought on Kingsway. The shortlist included Eric Parry and Alford Hall Monaghan Morris.
I was pottering through the school the other day on the way to a meeting when I overheard a conversation. 'Have you seen that winning design for the new building, ' one said to the other.
'Yeah, it's rubbish. There's no way any of us will be able to use it, ' came the reply. Astragal doesn't doubt Chipperfield's design skills, but it sounds like he's got a major communication job ahead of him as well.
