The Dyson Centre for Engineering Design
The Dyson Centre for Engineering Design was a complex refurbishment project which involved the re-modelling of one of the Department of Engineering’s existing undergraduate workshop spaces.
The new facility, which also includes a Bio-inspired Robotics Laboratory, provided open plan space capable of accommodating a variety of practical design and workshop-based undergraduate activities. The project also embraced the re-design of the Department’s library and the creation of a tiered, 60-seat lecture theatre.
A new, sloping bridge, with study spaces along its length, links the library and the Dyson Centre, spanning between two existing campus buildings. This new intervention radically improves circulation around the Department.
