Tanaka Business School, Imperial College

Tanaka Business School, Imperial College

The newest addition to the architectural melange on Exhibition Road is a striking white-framed glass building by Sir Norman Foster, which envelopes an existing 1960s building. This high-tech building, containing a drum for the lecture theatres, will serve as an atrium entrance to Imperial College. Foster is the most influential and prolific British architect today, responsible for some of London’s most recent landmarks including the Greater London Assembly building and the gherkin-shaped Swiss Re tower.
