An inventive building that gives a coherent form to an assembly of closed volumes of differing sizes and functions. The complexity of the different uses, their particular practical requirements and their hugely varying sizes and technical back-up has been drawn together with simple and dramatic circulation spaces. [A difficult brief, largely dictated by fixed functions, has been turned into a striking building. The large windowless volumes that dominate the form of the building have been given their own architectural expression but are brought together with some skill to create a unified and individual piece of design.]

Architect: BDP, London
Client/Developer: University of York
Presented by: Mr. Martyn Harrison, S. Harrison Developments Ltd.
