The World’s Largest Contemporary Dance Center

“The Laban Centre for Movement and Dance – is the sort of building that forces a smile. It comes from the wonderful optimism of an organisation that, in the unprepossessing surroundings of New Cross, has grown to become the largest school for contemporary dance in the world, has found £22 million to create a new building, chosen to stay in Lewisham and had the nerve to commission one of the world’s most interesting architectural practices to design something that will be a beacon for south-east London.”
