Sheppard Robson has released these images of its competition-winning designs for a major new building at the London Business School. The firm saw off a host of heavyweight contenders - including Foster and Partners, Allies and Morrison, Hopkins Architects and Arup Associates - to secure the deal. The designs for the building will link with the existing John Nash-designed terrace, creating a focal point for the campus.

The 6,000m 2 structure will occupy the cloistered courtyard with a series of spaces, bridging two buildings to create an 'amphitheatre of business'. Central to the design is a triple-height forum - a tiered space that 'steps up' to three storeys of lecture theatres to the north of the site.

To the south will be a ground-level courtyard overlooked by offices and seminar rooms.

Using bridge technology, three glass-andsteel 'bridges' will span the central forum creating a staggered roofline, which will, the designers say, 'infuse the internal space with a variety of light during the day and night'.

The project, which the practice claims will be 'experienced from the inside out', is expected to be submitted for planning in 2007, with completion set for 2011.
