The Faculty of Arts Building (FAB) has been shortlisted for the 2023 Stirling Prize for Building of the Year. The FAB is shortlisted alongside six other national winning building projects. It is the only contender outside London.
The winner of the RIBA Stirling Prize 2023 will be announced live in Manchester at the Stirling Prize ceremony on 19 October 2023.
The University of Warwick’s Faculty of Arts building has been recognised by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) as a National award winner.
The £60m building forms part of Warwick University’s £100m investment into the arts and is the cornerstone of the University’s new campus arts quarter.
Designed by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, the building brings together the departments and schools of the faculty under one roof.
Providing a world-class centre for teaching and research, it includes an antiquities room, cinema, theatre studios and a media lab, along with multi-purpose events and exhibition spaces.
The Architect's Journal (23/11/2022) AJ Architecture Awards 2022 winners revealed Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios has brought together all University of Warwick's arts departments under one roof for the first time in a new £43 million faculty building. Four light-filled pavilions grouped around a central stair, designed around the site's trees, sit at the heart of a parkland campus. The judges thought the scheme was ‘worthy of note' for its ‘pure architectural diagram'. They praised the atrium for its success in bringing the programme together. ‘It's a clear heart to the centre of the building,' they said.
