'Unusually cool for Part 1'


WINNER / BRONZE MEDAL BRIAN MACKEN THE MACKINTOSH SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE Kelvin Archive Tutors: Alan Hooper, Sally Stewart This repository provides a home for the extensive archives of Lord Kelvin, one of a series of significant scientific, cultural and political collections owned by the University of Glasgow. The building aimed to locate the archive physically within its Gilmorehill campus, registering Kelvin's position in the history of the institution - in the field of physical sciences - while providing bespoke storage and study facilities for the research community. The proposal is also driven by sustainability. The site, built form and building fabric act as a mesh of factors delivering the required environmental conditions through passive means.
