New LSE Student Centre Approved

Westminster council has approved this angle-tastic new London School of Economics student centre.

The project, which we first previewed last year, is effectively a huge student union, and in addition to a pub doling out the requisite tankards of snakebite, it will offer a gym, media centre, rooftop cafe, and meeting space. It's due to be completed in 2013.

The £21.5 million project is designed by architects O’Donnell and Tuomey, who are rather busy in London at the moment — they're also responsible for the redesigned Photographers' Gallery, due to open in a year's time.
