In autumn 2017, the Royal College of Art will open its schools of humanities and communications in Wood Lane, by the BBC’s former Television Centre complex
Together with the research campus being built by Imperial College, it shifts the capital’s creative axis to the heart of west London. The RCA is also moving part of its school of architecture into the former BBC building at 201 Wood Lane.
The RCA’s new hub will open in the Garden House building at 201 Wood Lane in September. A three-storey building totalling 40,000sqft, it shares a garden with the neighbouring 230,000sqft MediaWorks building.
More than 700 students and staff will be based in the RCA, which has scope to involve the community in exhibitions, live projects and digital partnerships.
