Stirling Prize-winning architects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios (FCBS) have developed an award-winning reputation for sustainable design and innovation and a strong track record in education and community buildings. The practice is at the forefront of innovative housing design, from inner city social housing to new suburban neighbourhoods, and is working on a series of substantial urban regeneration projects throughout the UK and abroad.
Education Architecture Urbanism places three of the practice's recent university projects in the context of their work as a whole, offering a critical review of the three buildings, and considering the future of learning environments and the university sector. Connecting these three projects is a new appreciation of the role of the university in the urban environment, and the ability of higher education buildings to fulfil a crucial role in the social, economic and environmental aspects of urban regeneration.
