LabanTate Modern architects Herzog & de Meuron went for a shimmering, plastic-clad building when tasked with designing the Laban building, a place where excellence in contemporary dance is both nurtured and displayed. The stunning building with its semi-transparent walls and translucent glow, awarded the 2003 Stirling Prize, lends itself perfectly to the creative processes and performances that take place within. The move to this stunning purpose-built space in 2002 created the largest contemporary dance school in Europe. Included are 12 dance studios, a 294-seat theatre and outdoor amphitheatre which are all put to multiple uses - there's an excellent programme of dance and theatre performances; degree level courses in choreography and dance; fitness, pilates, yoga and dance classes open to all; and physiotherapy, osteopathy and massage therapies. Graduates of Laban include Matthew Bourne. In 2005, Laban merged with Trinity College of Music bringing music and dance under one well designed roof.
