A rich visual experience, acoustic excellence and an extensive educational programme – these are the key elements of the 'London Centre for Music' by Diller Scofidio + Renfro. The architects' first concept design positions the future building at the southern tip of the Barbican complex and is to contribute towards making the inward-looking volume of the Brutalist culture centre more open and accessible to the outside world.

The location in the eastern part of the City of London is to link London's main cultural axes: the north-south axis from the South Bank and Tate Modern to St Paul's Cathedral, and the east-west axis along Culture Mile. The glazed prismatic structure of the 'London Centre for Music' also provides visual porosity: both the multi-storey entrance area and the raised concert hall can be looked into from the outside.

Indeed, great emphasis is placed on social inclusivity in the project. The 'London Centre for Music' harnesses the combined cultural expertise of the Barbican Centre, the London Symphony Orchestra and the Guildhall School of Music & Drama to substantially extend existing educational opportunities.
