Goldsmiths, University of London in southeast London was founded in 1891 by the City of London’s Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, who intended for the school to teach technical skills to men and women of the industrial and artisan classes. Nowadays, as part of the University of London in the New Cross neighborhood of South London, it is better known for its contributions to the arts, design, and social sciences including the United Kingdom’s pioneering art psychotherapy department, boasting many illustrious alumni.
The year 2005 saw the opening of the Ben Pimlott Building, filled with new teaching space and studios for the university’s 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 northern elevation to allow in plenty of light for students at work.
