Stirling 2001 - RIBA Journal Sustainability Award

  • Comment
Stirling 2001

Jubilee Campus at Nottingham University

Michael Hopkins and Partners' faculty building and library on the Jubilee Campus at Nottingham University won the RIBA Journal Sustainability Award.

The judges said, 'The Jubilee Campus is made up of three groups of buildings which sit alongside a lake, with woodland beyond, to make use of natural breezes and shading.

Cool air sweeps over the water and is channelled through low-level glazed louvres into the atrium spaces between the buildings.

These provide pleasant, naturally ventilated places for students to meet and talk. . . The project won a Thermie award from the European Union which made it possible to use photovoltaic cells and reduced the building's carbon dioxide emissions.

'It's important that a building should demonstrate its sustainable performance to society at large, and the ventilation cowls which sit on the roof do this with dramatic effect, ' the judges added.
