This Art College Provides a Blank Backdrop for Creativity

The 'Woo Building' houses the ceramics, glass-making, jewelry & metalwork classes for an art college, but the design of the structure is rather minimalist. Its square shape and factory-like construction features little ornamentation while providing a backdrop for creativity. The building consists of large and industrial student spaces as well as an abundance of natural light.

The Royal College of Art's latest classrooms are described as "containers for creativity," and provide a place where ingenuity and inventiveness can be harnessed. Architect Haworth Tompkins is known for similar projects that references a warehouse aesthetic -- this particular structure features a sawtooth roof and simple materials. The functional construction of the Woo building is done purposefully, to inspire those inside it to create art.
