LCF and Arts SU are launching the second in a series of competitions intended to enable LCF students to be involved in the development of the College’s new building on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford.

This time, the opportunity is for students to collaborate with the design team on a series of special concrete finishes that will form a permanent feature in the new LCF building. The design vision is to cast the design into the concrete surface of the lift lobbies and on the five double-height columns in the heart of the building.

Creative Brief

The brief is to design a pattern that could be developed with the architectural team to create the special finishes for these two components of the building. The design team is looking for up to five individual designs to develop in collaboration with the participating students – three for the lift lobbies and two for the columns.


The design should speak to the history, tradition and ethos of LCF.

Key dates

The deadline for entries is 19 April 2019, then there will be an opportunity for student entries to work with the architects to develop their ideas, before a winner is chosen.
