Approval granted for Stirling University academic centre
October 28 2015Page\Park designed academic centre at Stirling University offering languages courses for foreign students seeking to undertake a degree at the school, in partnership with INTO.
Adjunct to the existing Cottrell Building, replacing surface parking, the accommodation will include teaching, staff and support spaces arranged over three levels served by a stepped atrium.
Outlining their concept behind the build the architects explained that it was conceived as “three interlocking elements”, namely: “A mass of Stirling rock which is the functional core of the Centre, the ‘sky’ which provides the light filled social learning spaces and a circulation route which flows through the building and connects the rock and the sky.”
In Feng Shui, a requirement of the brief, rock represents learning, sky represents socialising and friendship and river represents the journey.
