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.
Local School Students Enjoy Taster Days in the FAB
The Faculty of Arts welcomed over seventy school students from across Coventry and Warwickshire to its new facilities last week. Over two days the Year 12 students from Caludon Castle, Cardinal Newman and Solihull Sixth Form spent time in the new FAB building. They had taster sessions ran by academic staff, tours of the Arts Centre, Q & A ambassador session as well as time to hear from alumni. The local students also entered a creative competition where they took pictures of the new building.
