The project will involve the demolition of several existing buildings on the site and the creation of flexible new spaces for creative research, social learning and intellectual collaboration. WAN’s Business Information Service posted the competition and the full brief can be viewed here.

LSE and the RIBA selected Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners from a group of five shortlisted teams, the others being: Grafton Architects, Ireland; Heneghan Peng, Ireland; Hopkins Architects, UK; and OMA, The Netherlands.

Professor Craig Calhoun, Director of the LSE and chairman of the Jury Panel which made the final decision commented: “From an extremely strong field of submissions, LSE has chosen Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners to create a new structure at the heart of our campus. They have designed beautiful, dynamic buildings around the world and they offered an elegant, thoughtful submission to this competition.

“RSHP grasped that this would be a building at once for the university and for the city, an enhancement to public as well as academic space. My colleagues and I are delighted that the RSHP team will now work with us to complete the design and add to the excitement of our terrific London location.”
