Event description

Description

The University was one of the new post-war universities, opening in 1963 on its 130 hectacre site in Norwich. The first new buildings were designed by Denys Lasdun. The campus has evolved since then, including Norman Foster's Sainsbury Centre for the Visual Arts which opened in 1978, and the University has gained a reputation for sustainable buildings, not least in its new Enterprise Centre opened in 2015 and described as 'Britain's Greenest Building'.

This event comprises an interactive workshop on placemaking, wayfinding and movement strategy, linked to work by BuroHappold, followed by presentations on the current strategy, the Enterprise Centre and the Julian Study Centre, followed by visits ending with the current exhibition at the Sainsbury Centre 'Superstructures: The New Architecture 1960-1990', celebrating the 40th anniversary of the opening of the Centre.
