Abstract

Michael Hopkrns & Partners, with the technological support of Ove Arup & Partners and the assistance of landscape designer, Battle McCarthy, have made the ambitions of Nottingham University to be a leanding light in the English Midlands a reality. This university building is a fine example of practical architectural design based on sustainable and innovative construction principles combining with the requirements of a centre of learning and technological research. Hopkins has already made a name for himself in the field of sustainable building. Here he has achieved true synergy between technology and respect for the environment. The envolope provides a complex array of high-tech functions to serve the 'body' of the building. This has allowed modification of the way that the parts of the whole are assembled, creating a completely new approach in which each element is designed to relate osmotically to the surrounding environment. environment.
