The Learning Zone at King’s Cross is a new intervention at Central Saint Martins. Since September 2012, 2 new learning zones (social learning spaces open to any UAL student) have been in operation, replacing the former facility at High Holborn. One is located in the library at Elephant and Castle, and the other is here on the fourth floor of the Granary Building.

David Bracegirdle is LZ@KX manager and spoke to us about his receptive, student-focused approach to the space, the range of technologies on offer and the importance of integrating digital and traditional resources.
