Ian Goodfellow will give a one-off architectural talk and tour of the Sibson Building, University of Kent, to reveal what makes this building an RIBA National Award winner.
RIBA Judges commented “This is a very thoughtful building, with a clear architectural concept which has been rigorous enough to withstand the project development and budgetary constraints… The quality of detailing is impressive, particularly as the contract was Design & Build. It was evident that the relationship between the design team and contractor was good, with shared aspirations helped by good communication of design intent. Likewise, there seemed to be a strong sense of trust and respect between client and architect and when we met them the architect’s passion and enthusiasm was infectious. We found it enjoyable to hear them speak about their ideas and we felt this was an impressive team collaboration. Overall, this is an exemplary education building embodying creativity with an intelligent and responsible approach.”
The talk is part of RIBA South East’s Great British Buildings series and will take place on 18th September 2018 between 6-8pm. Details of how to book your ticket and further information available here.
