Breaking up the outdated University Campus

Encouraged to spend more time outside due to Covid 19, we now need to make better use of our educational spaces, we need trees lining our campuses, and plants in our eye line.

Green spaces among our university spaces help mitigate the harmful mental health issues. Human activity and recreational areas within our university campus generates well being among our cold steel structures.

Planning and planting to create mini green spaces is a vital step in making our campus areas healthier. Small pockets of planting can create flourishing ecosystems in an otherwise man-made environment. 

ADP Architecture’s landscape team specified High Performance Concrete (HPC) benches for a new plaza space outside the WMG building at the University of Warwick. WMG (formerly known as Warwick Manufacturing Group) is an academic department at the University. It is a centre that provides research and education in STEM subjects: engineering, manufacturing and technology. It is the leading international role model for the successful collaboration between academia and the public and private sectors.

The requirement was for a selection of differing seating designs all using the same selection of materials. It was important for the aesthetic to be cohesive. High performance concrete benches were selected, with a reconstituted granite finish. Timber toppers provided a fresh, modern look and the bench designs complemented the campus architecture.
