Building magazine publishes building study on Collaborative Teaching Labs

"A new teaching laboratory at Birmingham university takes a pioneering approach to design, applying a collaborative working ethos never before tried in a university setting"

Building magazine's architecture critic, Ike Ijeh, has reviewed the Sheppard Robson-designed the Collaborative Teaching Laboratories at the University of Birmingham.

The 6,7002 project introduces radical new ways of delivering teaching laboratories by creating ultra-flexible, multi-functional spaces where numerous disciplines, including chemistry, chemical engineering, electronic engineering, geology, earth and environmental science, can work and collaborate side-by-side. This new collaborative form of teaching and learning overturns the traditional discipline-specific labs, allowing for a range of innovative teaching methods to be used, beyond the “classical bench laboratory” model, and builds upon and takes forward ideas from the sector by introducing collaboration across all spaces.
