The Design

In April 2016, LSE announced that Dublin based practice Grafton Architects had been selected as the winners of the international architectural competition to design The Marshall Building at 44 Lincoln's Inn Fields, the next major building project for the School.

Details of the six shortlisted design submissions can be found here...

A public exhibition of Grafton's winning design proposals was held in January 2017.  See detailed design boards here...

Since then LSE and Grafton Architects have been busy setting up the project arrangements to ensure everything goes smoothly as the teams will be working together for the next six years until the building is finished and occupied in 2021.

Introductory meetings have been held with the main end user groups who will be occupying or using the new building.  The sessions have been really positive and Grafton Architects are looking forward to continuing engagement with LSE staff and students. They want to ensure their interpretation of the design brief is correct and will be continuing to listen and learn to ensure their concept design now evolves to meet the requirements and the budget set by the School.
