Plans submitted for “landmark” School of Art & Design building

Nottingham Trent University (NTU) has submitted its plans for a new “landmark” building for its School of Art & Design.

Designed by architects Hawkins\Brown, the new 5,300 square metre building on Shakespeare Street will provide specialist teaching spaces, quiet study spaces and a collaborative hub for social learning, designing and making, including an innovation lab.
There will be an exhibition space for students’ work as well as a seating area to meet and

socialise in.

The new building is designed to achieve net zero carbon.

If the planning application is successful, the University would start deconstructing the
existing site from July 2021. The construction phase would then commence November 2021 with the delivery of the new building by Autumn 2023.

Executive Dean for the School of Art & Design, Michael Marsden, said: “This new development at 42 Shakespeare Street is not only an architecturally significant building for Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University but one which sees the school of Art & Design becoming the leading Art School for the Creative industries.

“Its bold new courses, in a newly created department, will combine traditional design practice with creative technologies that will not only product graduates for the fastest growing sector in the UK economy, but place Nottingham as the centre for film, television, animation, UX design, games design, graphic design and more.”
