the university of exeter has selected UK-based practice wilkinson eyre architects to build their forum project. the new building will be the centerpiece of the school’s streatham campus. the studio’s proposal works with the site’s natural features of their hilly campus by creating a green corridor connecting the interior to the exterior. the structure’s main feature is an undulating gridshell roof, which covers the new students spaces and orthogonal buildings. wilkinson eyre architects’ director, stafford critchlow said, ‘our proposals seek to create a new arrival point for the university. the sequence of spaces relate closely to the campus landscape, establishing a new architectural language which is less about placing objects within this landscape and more about an organic response to it.’ design work will begin immediately, with completion anticipated by 2012.
