RIBA Competitions is delighted to announce the launch of a new Invited Design Competition on behalf of King’s College London. Expressions of Interest are sought from architects or architectural practices for the redevelopment of the Quadrangle and its associated buildings at the College’s historic Strand Campus in London WC2.

Currently the Strand Campus accommodates some 9,200 students and more than 1,500 staff. Over the next five years the College plans to add a further 2,600 students at this campus, and the redevelopment of the Quad site will therefore form a crucial part of King’s plans to provide high quality facilities and infrastructure for teaching and research at this campus, and to nurture its connections with the surrounding area.

This £20 million project to design and redevelop the Quad site will provide an additional 3,700 square metres of teaching space and student facilities.

King’s is committed to appointing an architect based on their ability to bring innovative thinking to a significant historical site in order to revitalise a learning community.

Following the pre-qualification phase it is intended that up to five architects/practices will be invited to develop concept designs for the project.

The Jury Panel will include Niall McLaughlin acting as the RIBA Architect Advisor.

Each of the short-listed will receive an honorarium payment of £5,000 (+VAT) and be invited to present their proposals to a Jury Panel at a final assessment.
