London's Royal College of Art (RCA) have submitted proposals by Herzog & de Meuron to Wandsworth Council for a new £108 million ($141 million) building in Battersea. The "flagship" project will form part of the RCA's ongoing transformation into a 'STEAM' (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) postgraduate university, facilitating the provision of ten new programmes focusing on computer and materials science, the impact of the digital economy, advanced manufacturing, and intelligent mobility.

competition was held in 2016 in which Herzog & de Meuron competed with the likes of Christian Kerez, Lacaton & Vassal, and Diller Scofidio + Renfro. The successful design features a new café and art materials shop, with improved thoroughfares across the site – all of which will be publicly accessible. An area for large-scale art and design installations will also be created, coupled with expansive areas of indoor planting.
