What is the CBR project?

LSE’s Centre Building Redevelopment will create a state of the art flexible and highly sustainable academic and teaching building, designed by renowned architects Roger Stirk Harbour + Partners, find out more about the project by watching this short film and experience a fly through of the building to see what it will be like, when complete in 2019.
