Goldsmiths College in southeast London was founded in 1891 by the City of London’s Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, who intended for it to teach technical skills to men and women of the industrial and artisan classes. Nowadays, as part of the University of London, it is more known for its contributions to arts, design, and social sciences, boasting many illustrious alumni.
The year 2005 saw the opening of the Ben Pimlott Building, filled with teaching space and studios for the department of art. Designed by British architect Will Alsop, most of the building favors function over form: It is a metal and glass structure, with a fully glazed front to allow in plenty of light for artists at work.
