Kensington and Chelsea College in west London held a topping out ceremony for its new pound;15 million centre as work neared its conclusion. Designed by Dixon Jones, the architecture firm behind the remodelling of the Royal Opera House and the National Portrait Gallery, the Hortensia Centre features fashion studios, design suites, an exhibition area and a cafe for students. The college is also investing pound;500,000 in technology, with plasma screens in the learning areas. Mike Jutsum, the college principal (top right), said: "Providing our students with the best learning environment and resources is at the heart of everything we do. The redesigned campus is built on that ethos and promises students a fresh and vibrant learning space."
