Arup Associates Campus Model
Competed in 2007, this building brought together two existing Arup offices in the West Midlands in a convenient business park location in Solihull.
The Campus was designed to be both naturally ventilated and maximise daylight penetration, creating a more pleasant working environment as well as reducing lighting and heating costs. This combines two important themes in modern office design, allowing individuals control over their working conditions while attempting to reduce the building's impact on the environment.
The model, made by Andrew Ingham in 2007 and on loan from Arup Associates, can be viewed in the Architecture Gallery.Audio: The Arup Associates Campus Project
