White Arkitekter shortlisted for new faculty of arts at Warwick University

White Arkitekter is among five teams competing in the final round for an ‘architecturally outstanding’ £33 million faculty of arts at Warwick University in Coventry, UK.

The two-stage RIBA-organised competition invited ‘innovative and insightful teams with exceptional creative skills’ to submit proposals for the new landmark building.

The winning design will bring together eight departments at the university currently spread across two separate buildings and will replace an existing car park near the main library and students union.

RIBA adviser Cindy Walters of Walters & Cohen alongside members of the university’s senior leadership team and leading departmental academics made up the judging panel.

Foster + Partners, Grimshaw, WilkinsonEyre and FCBS also made the shortlist. The winning multidisciplinary design team will be announced on 1 February.
