Six finalists in competition for Paul Marshall Building in London
The anonymous entries of AL_A (Amanda Levete), David Chipperfield Architects, Diller Scofidio + Renfro with Penoyre & Prasad, Grafton Architects, Herzog & de Meuron Architects, and Niall McLaughlin Architects with Scott Brownrigg have gone on to the final phase of the competition organized by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) to come up with a design for a building of the London School of Economics and Political Science. After the demolition of the current construction at 44 Lincoln’s Inn Fields, which the LSE acquired in 2013, a new building is to rise on the site. The Paul Marshall Building, as it is to be called, will house the school’s academic departments of accounting, finance, and management besides research centers – including the Marshall Institute for Philanthropy and Social Entrepreneurship – and sports facilities. The identities of the authors are being kept anonymous but the designs are on view at the Saw Swee Hock Student Centre, within the university campus, and visitors may vote. The result will inform the final selection process, and the winner will be announced in the spring.
