LSE building gets artistic twist

Artist Richard Watson has created a five-storey architectural intervention for the London School of Economics’ new academic building in London’s Lincoln’s Inn Fields.

Commissioned by the Contemporary Art Society, the work – called Square the Block – will complete a corner of the building, with the base, at first-floor level, ‘tectonically’ twisted.

Watson says, ‘The corner… has been shunted upwards in the manufacturing stage, giving the sculpture a pliable and witty answer to freeing up the walkway.’

The work will be unveiled on 14 September.
