Prof. Lord Bhattacharrya building shortlisted for Project of the Year Award
Another shortlisting for Prof. Lord Bhattacharyya building has been announced in the Building Awards 2020. Nominees in the Building Magazine Project of the Year category had to demonstrate outstanding contribution to the built environment and be an exemplar of good construction practice.
Based at the University of Warwick, the building was officially open in February 2020 by HRH The Prince of Wales. The Centre is a partnership between WMG, University of Warwick, Jaguar Land Rover, and Tata Motors, and is the largest of its kind in Europe and is well timed, arriving when a global mobility revolution is underway, with a new age for transport mobility.
A beacon for automotive research it brings together the brightest minds from industry and academia, to develop future vehicles and mobility solutions. It is home to up to 1,000 staff working across design, engineering and research, as well as future engineers on degree programmes.
Designed by Cullinan Studios the brief for the Centre was for simplicity and strength of purpose, turning a complex assembly of spaces into an immediately legible building.
