Hawkins\Brown win College of Arts commission from University of Glasgow
Hawkins\Brown Architects have been beaten off competition from five other shortlisted practices to be chosen by the University of Glasgow to lead design development of a new College of Arts as part of its campus masterplan.

The university brief calls for a building capable of marrying culture, research and teaching on the site of the former Western Infirmary.
Eleanor Magennis, project development manager for the College of Arts project, commented: “The new College of Arts will be a gateway building connecting the University with the West End’s Cultural Quarter.

“Our masterplan calls for a distinctive building of high architectural quality. This will be Hawkins\Brown’s first project in Scotland and they impressed us during the interview process with their experience, enthusiasm and engaging approach.”

In a statement the architects welcomed their selection, stating: “Delighted to be working on the exciting new College of Arts building for the University of Glasgow to provide an inviting space that will ignite creativity and innovative thinking.”

Facing Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery the arts hub will be the lynchpin of a new West End cultural quarter when it completes in 2022.
