Ben Pimlott Building

Today Goldsmith's College unveiled their brand spanking new chunk of seven-storey architectural goodness, otherwise known as the Ben Pimlott Building.

The £10.2m building, which houses rooms for the visual arts, psychology and computing departments, was built by architects Alsop and Partners, who also designed the award winning Peckham Library in south London.

The building itself is clad in metal on three sides, with the remaining side constucted entirely from glass. There's also a "metal structural scribble" on the side of the building.

As our architectural descriptions are pretty lame we've reproduced some photo's from the College website below to give you an idea. There are many more here.

And if you're wondering who Ben Pimlott was, here you go.

Nice photos! I met Ben Pimlott a few times before he died and all I can say is that they've captured his unkempt mad eyebrows perfectly with the squiggly bits on that building. He was a lovely man.
