University of Edinburgh propose translucent campus link
The University of Edinburgh is progressing plans to sweep away a double-height link building conjoining the Lister Institute and Pfizer building at Hill Square with a Reiach & Hall designed teaching facility.

Doubling as a circulation route and entrance space the Teaching and Learning Centre would be accessed off Roxburgh Place with new hard landscaping and little change to an existing rear courtyard.

In a design statement the practice observed: “The internal spaces will allow for free circulation between both Lister and Pfizer buildings and address the issues created by the multitude of levels to the existing buildings, stitching them together more effectively than the current link building.”

A steel frame structure it will be clad in aluminium frame curtain walling and translucent polycarbonate panels, forming a lightweight insertion to sit alongside its more robust neighbours.
