The brief for this gateway Engineering, Education and Entrance building at the University of Southampton called for it to be welcoming, and to reveal its varied academic and social activities. The practice responded by designing an internal ‘street’ that can be clearly seen from outside the building and articulates its internal functionality. The ‘street’ also contributes to energy conservation, allowing a greater level of passive ventilation than is usual in buildings of this type. The internal program is based on a range of versatile, programmable teaching and study spaces. There is also a 430-seat lecture theatre and breakout spaces that are colour-coded in the equivalent of screen pixel colours.
