Arts building which is the second phase of the RCA's Battersea campus masterplan

The 3,000m² building, which is home to the printmaking and photography programmes and includes studios, a gallery, and a 220-seat lecture theatre, brings the RCA’s Fine Art programmes together on one site for the first time.

The building is arranged as two parallel blocks with a central top lit hall, designed to house the large presses used by printmakers, at the the heart of the building. A three storey block that fronts Battersea Bridge Road contains retail and business space.

At ground floor level the corner of the building facing Battersea Bridge is cut away to give the RCA a and gallery a public entrance and foyer area for the lecture theatre.
