University of Liverpool, Engineering Department Liverpool, UK

The Active Learning Lab is the centrepiece of the University of Liverpool Engineering Department’s redevelopment and has become a colourful addition to the Liverpool skyline, enhancing the Department’s presence across the city.

The Lab’s innovative cantilevered, glass-clad structure appears to float over a retained, brutalist podium building. By day the outer skin of reflective and fritted glass panels is transparent, but at night it glows with an endless range of colours, morphing designs and patterns.
