rogers stirk harbour’s winning project is centered around a new public square, framed by the surrounding university buildings, creating a sense of place and connecting the scheme within the city’s existing urban fabric. internally, rooms and circulation areas have been crafted to encourage discussion and collaboration between students and staff through a variety of formal and informal spaces.

environmental design has been fully integrated, with passive ventilation allowing the building’s occupants to control their own environment, while narrow floor plans enable daylight to fully penetrate the scheme’s interior.
