A recently opened £10m architecture centre in south London has been vandalised, causing £120,000-worth of damage.

The centre, built as a memorial to Stephen Lawrence, who was murdered aged 18 in 1993, opened last week to offer children from deprived backgrounds the chance to begin careers in architecture, urban design and building.

Lawrence had dreamed of becoming an architect from the age of seven before he was stabbed to death in a unprovoked racist attack.

The Deptford building, designed by David Adjaye, had eight £15,000 windows designed by Chris Ofili smashed in the attack.

Police are treating the vandalism as a racist incident.
