LSE go-ahead received for Global Centre for Social Sciences

Westminster City Council resolved to grant planning permission for a major redevelopment at the heart of The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) campus - the largest project in the School's 120 year history.

The project will create a new flexible and sustainable academic and teaching building. It will see the construction of academic buildings arranged around a public square, providing a new focus at the centre of LSE. 

Architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP) were selected as lead designers for the scheme following an RIBA competition held in 2013.

Gillespies is the landscape architect on the scheme, designing its public realm and landscaped areas. Demolition work is due to begin this summer with the building expected to be completed in late 2018.
