A major new campus for the Royal College of Art (RCA), featuring a space for public exhibitions, has opened.
The £135m development accommodates four storeys of studios and workshops for sculpture, contemporary art, video and film, and design.
Meanwhile, a double-height 350sq m space space known as The Hanger has large doors at either end to enable the installation of heavy, large or complex works of art, and will be used for public exhibitions.
A similar but smaller room provides research, testing and assembly space for sculpture and robotics projects.
To coincide with the launch, the RCA has announced a new five-year strategy for 2022–27 which includes plans to double the percentage of Black British and People of Colour students and researchers from underrepresented backgrounds.
