London School of Economics wins AJ100 Client of the Year

[AJ100 AWARDS] Progressive architecture patron, the London School of Economics (LSE), has won the AJ100 Client of the Year Award

The AJ100 practices which put forward the London School of Economics for this award did so for its ‘consistent patronage of high-quality architecture’.

Under the stewardship of Julian Robinson, its director of estates, the LSE has continued to commission excellent architecture from a variety of practices.

The past year has seen the completion of the new student union building by O’Donnell + Tuomey, on what RIBA Gold Medallist Joseph Rykwert described as ‘an impossible site’, and the appointment of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, which in November last year won the competition to design the LSE’s new £90 million Global Centre for Social Sciences at the university’s Aldwych campus.

The judges noted that using invited design competitions to ensure fresh thinking from sophisticated practices has become a hallmark of the LSE’s procurement approach.

Nominated by AJ100 practices and assessed by an AJ editorial panel, this award is presented to the client that, in the panel’s view, made the greatest contribution to UK architecture over the year.
