Haworth Tompkins selected to refurbish the Warburg Institute 06.06.18

Haworth Tompkins have been selected to refurbish the Warburg Institute. The Institute, founded by Aby Warburg in Hamburg in 1900, is one of the world’s leading centres for studying the interaction of ideas, images and society and is part of the School of Advanced Study, University of London. Its open-stack Library, Photographic Collection and Archive serve as an engine for interdisciplinary research, postgraduate teaching and a prestigious events and publication programme. It is housed in a historic Charles Holden Building, the top floor of which contains painting studios for the Slade, as part of the University of London’s Bloomsbury campus. The project involves the refurbishment and extension of the building. It aims to address infrastructure issues as well as protect and nurture the future life of the Institute, exploring the changes and additions needed for it to become more public-facing.
