LSE Hitting the Architectural Heights

Osborne is pleased to announce that the Saw Swee Hock student Centre for the London School of Economics (LSE) has been nominated for yet another coveted award.

This time, the project is up for the Mies van der Rohe award – Europe’s most prestigious architectural accolade. Named after German-American architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the biennial award will be presented to a building completed in the last two years by a European architect.

The Saw Swee hock faces tough competition in the form of the Danish Maritime Museum, the Ravensburg Art Museum in Germany, the Antinori Winery in Italy and Poland’s Philharmonic Hall Szczecin.

The jury, led by Italian architect Cino Zucchi, and also including RIBA’s Tony Chapman, will visit the buildings before selecting an overall winner.

This is set to be announced on Friday 8 May in a ceremony in Barcelona.
