The Clore Learning Centre at the RIBA will be a destination for the public to engage with architecture as part of a creative learning programme. It will include a dedicated studio, study room, terrace and an interactive display area that will showcase the Centre’s work. The new spaces will be an inspirational setting for hands-on, creative activities for a range of audiences, from children and families to life-long learners.
Due for completion in 2019, the project comprises the remodelling of 600m2 of accommodation at the RIBA’s Grade II* listed headquarters at 66 Portland Place in central London. The new Learning Centre will transforms how the public learns about and responds to architecture and is made possible by a generous grant from the Clore Duffield Foundation. Hayhurst and Co. were selected for the projected following a two-stage led by the RIBA Competitions Office.
