Sheppard Robson wins London Business School competition

Sheppard Robson has won the design competition for a major new building for London Business School, beating off stiff competition.The winning design will transform the School by creating a real focal point to its campus. The new 6,000m2 structure, independent of the existing buildings, will occupy the cloistered courtyard with a series of spaces which bridge the two buildings, creating an active forum - an ‘amphitheatre of business’. This three-dimensional, tiered space ‘steps up’ to three storeys of lecture theatres with a ground level internal courtyard overlooked by offices and seminar rooms. Using bridge technology, three occupied ‘bridges’, expressed in glass and steel, oversail the central forum creating a dramatic staggered roofline and infusing the internal spaces with a variety of light conditions by day and night.The project is due to be submitted for planning during the first half of 2007 for completion by the end of 2011.
