Still no sign of the University's own Masterplan website though.
Looks good.

I can't believe my eyes! Is that a glass building I see?

Where's the terracotta tiles, cheap plastic panelling and the 1990's 'Leeds look'?

Surely this this is a proposal for a development in Manchester or Liverpoo?

That looks fantastic. Once again, like Laidlaw, UoL is keeping the bar high for architecture in the city.

I wonder where they're going to relocate estate services to when they demolish their buildings to make way for the ragg centre.

Shame it will be so hidden away from the road though.

I really wish they'd stump up the couple of million it'd cost to make Civil, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering look as good as the Houldsworth building is going to look. They're going to look even worse when that refurb is finished.

Ok, so it's going to slot into a gap, not replace the engineering buildings. It certainly looks better than the beige tile extension they built around the corner!

I'm trying to work out how the two renders of the Bragg building relate to each other. They both appear to be of the same side of the building but with completely different elevations. Are they two different designs that are being considered?

i think the one that has Bragg carved into the stone is an older render

NORTH EAST QUARTER DEVELOPMENT

http://www.adp-architecture.com/proj...er-development

ADP was commissioned to conduct a review of the faculty of engineering and two schools within the faculty of mathematics and physical sciences, namely physics and chemistry. This review resulted in the development of a new facility titled the North East Quarter Development.

The new facility will provide a gateway to the university campus by redeveloping the Grade II* listed old mining building, demolishing the estates building and the central boiler house. The facility has been designed to create a model for new workplaces that will lead to improving utilisation, encouraging sharing and interdisciplinary working. The design will deliver the highest quality facilities for research - including computing, laboratories, clean rooms, low vibration, optics, radiation, electronics, microscopy, low-temperature, NMR, bio-nano and biochemistry research areas.

The new development sits within a conservation area and is adjacent to the Grade II* listed chemistry building and nearby St George's Field. The new development forms part of the masterplan developed by ADP.

CLIENT:University of Leeds

LOCATION:Leeds

STUDIO:Manchester

TYPE:New Build, Refurbishment, Unbuilt, Listed

VALUE:£63m

SERVICES:Architecture

STATUS:In progress

oh the footprint of that is going to be very different, going tonintersect weirdly with St George'd and Chemistry and have no continuity from the rest of engineering

much preferred the other design, although that's literally my only complaint on this

The other render appears as part of the masterplan, so it may be older.

Preferred the other one. But do like the 'plinth' this one sits on with the 'etched' Bragg name. And the cross cross effect is quite cool.

They've painted the set to the original Total Recall black and white.

Not in a bad way.

Good news on the Bragg building

£60m tender process to begin at University of Leeds

Quote:
A £60m science and computing building at the University of Leeds is being put out to tender.

The facility will be at the university's city centre campus and will be home for the Bragg Centre for advanced materials and imaging.

The next stage is a market engagement exercise before prequalification phase begins in December. The North Eastern Quarter building is scheduled to be completed by 2019.
