Centre Building at LSE is a new world-class hub for political sciences, designed by leading architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners for the London School of Economics. At its heart sits we have created a vibrant new public square that has become the focal point of the development and provides much-needed open space for the enjoyment of students, teachers and visitors to the academic campus.
Located at the northern end of Houghton Street, the new square acts as a focal point for the campus, improving connectivity and wayfinding across the site, and providing aopen space for students, staff and visitors to enjoy.
A series of contemporary granite planters and benches provide plenty of opportunities for social interaction and knowledge exchange. The square is complemented by two lushly planted roof terraces that extend the School’s internal environment, providing additional informal space for students and staff to interact and enjoy the spectacular views across London’s skyline surrounded by nature.
