Half shortlist was commissioned by universities

The client behind O’Donnell & Tuomey’s Stirling-shortlisted LSE student centre has hailed the fact that half this year’s finalists were commissioned by universities.

Julian Robinson, who is chair of the Higher Education Design Quality Forum, said: “This is simply unprecedented and demonstrates universities are one of the most important patrons of the best architecture in the UK.”

They are Henley Halebrown’s Chadwick Hall at Roehampton University, Niall McLaughlin Architects’ Sultan Nazrin Shah Centre at Oxford, and Cambridge University’s Storey’s Field Community Centre and Nursery, designed by MUMA.
