University of Wales Newport Campus Architecture by BDP Architects
Words from Architects :
On a very tight urban site, the building responds by layering activities vertically and integrates the Business School, and the School of Art, Media and Design.
The ground level houses public exhibition/foyer/lecture and performing art space. The mid level accommodates the tiered library and restaurant plateau forming social heart. The upper levels house flexible studio, workshop and teaching space wrapping around the yellow timber clad ‘hothouse’ suspended in central space.
