A clean-cut building in a simpler and fresher style than typical Allies & Morrison buildings

The institute has a worldwide reputation for excellence in both research and teaching.

The Institute of Criminology is one of three new Faculty buildings within Allies and Morrison’s masterplan for Cambridge University’s Sidgwick site for the Arts and Humanities. Enclosing the fourth side of an open garden courtyard, the linear building links the Faculties of Divinity, Law and History, and provides space for teaching, offices, postgraduate research and the renowned criminology library.

The facade is designed as a modular structure made up of pre-cast concrete inserts set within anodised aluminium panels which allow reflected light back into the double-height internal spaces.
