Following a RIBA competition, Hayhurst & Co. has been chosen to design the new flagship Clore Learning Centre at the RIBA’s Grade II* listed headquarters at 66 Portland Place in central London. The new Learning Centre will transform how the public learns about and responds to architecture and is made possible by a generous grant from the Clore Duffield Foundation.
The new Clore Learning Centre at 66 Portland Place will be a destination for the public to engage with and respond to architecture in a creative learning programme. It will include a dedicated studio, study room, terrace and interactive display area. It will showcase the value of good design for effective teaching and learning and will provide an inspirational setting for hands-on, creative activities for a range of audiences, from children and families to lifelong learners.
The new spaces are part of our national learning programme that includes creative workshops, walks, talks and the RIBA National Schools Programme, which has supported 250 RIBA members in engaging 4,000 primary and secondary school children since September 2015.
