University of Cambridge
Nicholas Hare Architects have been appointed to head the extensive refurbishment and remodelling of the ARUP building at the University of Cambridge. The building - on the New Museums site - was designed by Arup Associates in the 1960s and will reopen in its new form in 2015.
The complete project will house the extended Zoology Museum and the Babbage Lecture Theatre, together with the recently established Cambridge Conservation Initiative. The retention of the building is the first step in developing an exemplary approach to carbon management.
