Ryder showcase Wick Community Campus
Ryder Architecture have showcased their work at Wick Community Campus, a combined high school, primary and community facility within the Caithness community.

A finalist in the Royal Town Planning Institute’s 2018 award programme the £48.5m campus was commissioned following the merger of Pulteneytown Academy Primary and South Primary.

Professor Gordon Murray, partner in Ryder Architecture, commented: “Since the Georgian era, Wick has been an important urban centre in the far north of the British Isles, its economy a barometer of regeneration in the region.  Education underpins that regeneration and Wick Community Campus is at its heart. 

“Many people have contributed to its establishment and to ensuring it maximises a positive impact on the potential futures of the community in the immediate surroundings and across the north of Scotland.”

serious specular reflections on the pool surface - not good for those in trouble on the bottom.
Well done for keeping the colonnade from being value-engineered out though

It photographs surprisingly well. Having seen it in the flesh it is utter dross from a built quality and detailed design point of view.

The other side, (ie the design of the whole school element) where the wings are terrible designed and built with a sea of tarmac between, are the stuff of nightmares.....
