Music building wins national architectural award

Still flushed with the success of last week’s musical extravaganza that was Summer Music Week, we’re delighted to announce that the Colyer-Fergusson Building won a RIBA (Royal Institution of British Architects) National Award 2013 on Wednesday evening.

It is one of only two buildings in the Southeast to win a 2013 RIBA National Award for architectural excellence and one of 43 to win nationally, and will now go forward for RIBA’s top award, the Stirling Prize, with the shortlist being announced on 18 July.

Fantastic news for the University, and for Tim Ronalds Architects. Fingers crossed for July…

    Looks amazing! Have you invited Tori Amos to open the hall with a piano rendition of Cornflake Girl?

    Now that, Mr K, would be a marvellous idea!
