to an audience including tim blackman (vice chancellor), james kennedy (cfo) and andrew dickie (head of estates), bpr explained how the design had been conceived in partnership with the university’s academic team to provide truly inspirational cross faculty working. notably, the building’s potentially diverse occupants – 'science and technology' and 'arts and creative industries' will have opportunities to work with and support each others’ projects.
professor martin loombes - pvc executive dean – faculty of science and technology, along with members of his team, provided fascinating insights into the use of the leading edge technology and the open learning environments that will enable inspirational work to take place
areas built into the internal and external spaces for display of art installations will further bring the work created inside the building out into the social realms of the campus.
bpr architects will be working closely with the university executive team to monitor how the building’s innovative teaching facilities are
received and adapted by tutors and students throughout the academic year.
