The Institute for Health & Wellbeing at University of Glasgow
ARCHITECTURE: Future Building or Project
University of Glasgow
The Institute for Health and Wellbeing at University of Glasgow creates, develops and disseminates ground-breaking research on disease prevention, improving Health & Wellbeing and reducing inequalities locally, nationally and globally.
The New building brings five, formerly remote, research groups together in a single location for the first time, transforming the Institutes ability to develop interdisciplinary research and outreach. The building creates meaningful street level space for public engagement and connects these interactions spatially to the impactful work of the Institutes upper levels.
The building design amplifies the spirit of the Institute and delivers a wellbeing focussed, articulated workspace rich in sustainable and environmental responses. Natural strategies for daylight and ventilation are optimised in pursuit of a human centred response to workspace in the city.
