Holborn: John Watkins Plaza, London School of Economics
Holborn: John Watkins Plaza, London School of Economics
This plaza, which is off Portugal Street, was designed to replicate the open space of a square in an Italian city, and to achieve one of the LSE's key aspirations, that of matching quality of environment with quality of teaching and research. It was named after Professor of Philosophy John Watkins who taught at the LSE from 1950 to 1989, later becoming Emeritus Professor until his death in 1999. The plaza was opened in June 2003. The building on the left is the Lionel Robbins Building, while The Lakatos Building is on the right.
