Royal College of Art



Strategic plans and built work have been completed for the Royal College of Art since the competition-winning design for the Library. Our relationship is ongoing, other work has included: studies for a new underground lecture theatre, offices, a new bar, remodelling the architecture department, preparing a listed building manual, contributing to their fifty year strategic plan and the refurbishment of their Sculpture School.

Wright & Wright was invited to sit on the Estates Strategy Committee for the Royal College of Art. This involved surveying the existing campus at Kensington Gore and the Sculpture School at Battersea. Detailed discussions and workshops were held with department heads to outline future developments for the College. Feasibility studies were prepared to examine ways of expanding the college within these sites, as well as further research into alternative sites.
