Designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP) and completed in 2019, the 16,000m² scheme consists of two linked steel-framed blocks, of six and 13 storeys. The lower floors house a café, lecture theatres, a basement auditorium and seminar rooms, while the upper floors are home to five academic departments. The building looks out over a new public square, designed to improve connectivity at the heart of the campus. The tour will also encompass the buildings’ roof terraces, planted with nectar-rich flowers to feed the LSE bees.

The Marshall Building is a seminal new addition to LSE’s campus. Designed by Dublin-based Grafton Architects, the large, multi-purpose building occupies a pivotal position at the southern corner of Lincoln’s Inn Fields. The Great Hall on the ground floor is a huge, dramatic space providing an uninterrupted link between Lincoln’s Inn Fields and the rest of the campus. The lower levels house a Sports Centre with multipurpose sports hall, squash courts and dynamic weights room, arts rehearsal facilities and music practice rooms. Teaching takes place on levels 1 and 2 and academic departments occupy levels 3-9.
