The Institute occupies a four-storey building designed by Spanish Architects Barozzi Veiga in London’s Design District.
At the heart of Greenwich Peninsula, Design District is London’s first permanent, purpose-built hub for the creative industries. A collection of 16 unique buildings designed by a team of eight leading architects, the District is designed to support an ecosystem of 1,800 creatives, encompassing individual makers, ambitious start-ups, ground-breaking enterprises and industry leaders.
"Education is the lifeblood of the creative sector. Having it represented at Design District is essential, and we could not wish for a better tenant and partner than the new Institute for Creativity and Technology from Ravensbourne University London. It is an inclusive, culturally diverse and naturally collaborative organisation which is already heavily involved in the Peninsula. Most importantly, the strength and real-world focus of their teaching gets students employed."
– Helen Arvanitakis, director, Design District
