York University Campus Development

RIBA Award winner, 19 May 2011

The site, acquired in 2007 and masterplanned by BDP, is adjacent to the original 1960s university campus will eventually double the size of the university.

The landscaping presents pedestrians and cyclists with a series of routes and vistas and sets out to ensure that the site is not dominated by highways and parking. The success of the masterplan lies in the subtlety of these spaces and the arrangement of the buildings whose geometries create protective microclimates. Each building has its own distinctive landscape setting and ‘inner world’ which balances the need for intimacy with the civicness of the overall masterplan.
