SAW SWEE HOCK: THE REALISATION OF THE LONDON SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS STUDENT CENTRE. Ed. by Julian S. Robinson. Artifice Books on Architecture, London, 2015. 144 pp. with 150 ills. (133 col.). 29 x 24 cm. ISBN 9781908967527 In English.
Publisher's description: The book provides an overview of the Saw Swee Hock Students Centre, the first new building constructed at the London School of Economics (LSE) for over 40 years. It includes a reception, offices, bars, a fitness centre and event and media facilities. The book looks at the commissioning process on the part of LSE, through the appointment of the O'Donnell + Tuomey Architects -- who were selected following a two-stage international design competition in June 2009 -- to then focus on the way in which the architects have responded to the complexities of the brief and in collaboration with the bespoke manufacturers involved; particularly, the quality of the bricks, each of which is hand-formed, resulting in a facade that is both striking and unusual in central London. The book includes contributions by Julian Robinson, LSE Estates, as well as interviews with the designers and manufacturers who were involved in the process of construction.
