Architect scoops Plymouth architecture school day after Portsmouth triumph
Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios has won its second university competition this week.
The architect has been appointed to design a carbon-neutral architecture and engineering facility for Plymouth university.
Earlier this week it won an RIBA competition for a new building for Portsmouth university, beating Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners, AHMM, Hawkins Brown and Nicholas Hare.
The Plymouth project will involve a new build element and the refurbishment of the university’s 1970s Babbage Building, named after the “father of the computer” Charles Babbage.
The architect will now develop a full planning application. The project is due to complete in the summer of 2022.
The 10,000sq m of research and teaching space will be built on the western edge of the campus, close to the 2012 Marine Building designed by Burwell Deakins Architects.
