Alsop illuminates Goldsmiths College site

  • Comment

A gleaming skin of corrugated metal clustered with lights by Alsop Architects has won over planners in south London. The seven-storey arts complex for Lewisham's Goldsmiths College will transform the car-park site into digital media labs and an Orwellian-sounding research unit called the Cente for Cognition, Culture and Computation. Project director Jonathan Leah said the industrial aesthetic reflected tough studio spaces within. Three sides of the 3,600m 2building are metal with the remaining side glass. The industrial lights pockmark facades to create shimmering illumination across the walls, which are topped by a roof terrace. The first of two phases of building is due to start in September and end late next year.The total cost has not been finalised but the first phase is worth £10 million.
