The University of Hull’s Allam Medical Building has won the Buildings that Inspire category at the Guardian University Awards which were announced on 24 April. The awards recognise the multi-faceted institutions within UK universities and they highlight the innovative facilities that encourage students to learn creatively.
We were appointed architect and interior designer for the collaborative teaching and research building that opened at the beginning of the academic year and includes lecture theatres, seminar rooms as well as a simulated hospital ward. We are delighted that the project has been recognised by a judging panel of academics and professionals experienced in the higher education sector. The Guardian reports that the building "has transformed the way the university teaches the next generation of health professionals. It provides a collaborative environment that enables doctors, nurses and midwives to train together, preparing them more effectively for their future careers." See link below for the full article.
