A design competition has been launched to find an architect for a £20 million redevelopment of King’s College London’s Strand Campus.

The RIBA-organised competition is inviting expressions of interest to design a redevelopment of the Quadrangle and its associated buildings.

King’s College wants to extend the campus by 3,700sqm, providing capacity for a further 2,600 students on a campus currently accommodating 9,200.

A statement from the college said it will appoint an architect “based on their ability to bring innovative thinking to a significant historical site in order to revitalise a learning community”.

Five practices will be invited to develop concept designs. The deadline for expressions of interest is June 1.
