Expressions of interest from architects with exceptional design skills are invited for a competition to design a new Students’ Centre for the London School of Economics and Political Science on its Aldwych campus.
As the world’s leading centre for social sciences, the LSE is one of the largest colleges within the University of London and has an outstanding reputation for academic excellence nationally and internationally. The next step in the campus development programme is to dramatically improve its facilities by creating a new Students’ Centre.
The new Students’ Centre will play a vital role in enhancing the student experience and in furthering the LSE’s aim of creating a world class estate. The School’s ambition is to procure an exemplary piece of architecture which is innovative, sustainable and inspirational, which will be at the forefront of ‘Contemporary Westminster’. Given the nature of the building, fresh and creative interior deign skills will also be paramount. Expressions of interest are sought from architects who will be required to act as ‘Lead Consultant’.
The competition will follow a two stage process, inviting expressions of interest at stage one. A shortlist will be chosen and invited to produce concept designs.
