Penoyre & Prasad in the running for new Bath University arts complex

  • Comment
Penoyre & Prasad - practice of the RIBA's president elect, Sunand Prasad - has been named on the shortlist in the competition to design the University of Bath's new arts complex at its Claverton Down campus.

Prasad's firm is joined by five top names in the RIBA-organised contest to mastermind the replacement of the college's current arts facilities.

The other contenders are: Jamie Fobert Architects, McInnes Usher McKnight Architects (MUMA), Stanton Williams, and Tony Fretton Architects.

The victorious team will be asked to take the project forward to stage D, and the university has already embarked on a major fundraising campaign 'to ensure the completion' of the project.

Part of a larger overhaul of the university's existing building stock, the new centre will also allow the institute space for 'significant expansion' and will sit on a prominent plot next to the arts lecture theatre.

A winner is expected to be announced at the end of September.
