Haworth Tompkins wins green light for RCA building

  • Comment

Wandsworth Council has approved Haworth Tompkins’ saw-tooth-roofed studios for the Royal College of Art (RCA) in south London.

The practice’s RIBA competition-winning scheme will see the conversion of a former factory in Battersea into a new home for the college’s painting students – who are currently split between two separate sites.

The proposal will double the height of the existing building and is expected to start on site in August this year.

It is hoped the facility for the painting department, which has spawned the likes of David Hockney, Peter Blake and Tracey Emin, will open in time for the 2009-2010 academic year.
