O'Donnell + Tuomey win University of Leeds competition

The University, supported by the Laidlaw Foundation, commissioned this international design competition in partnership with the Royal Institute of British Architects. We are now delighted to find ourselves selected for this significant new building, a new student hub for University of Leeds. Our concept is to make an open concourse for collaborative learning, connected to cellular teaching spaces contained in brick houses. A multi-level forum is punctuated by planted courtyards, forest gardens that will create a special identity for the social spaces.

The University provides an outstanding educational experience for all of our students and the student hub will enhance this by bringing together support for student enterprise, innovation skills development and careers in one exceptional space.
The creation of innovative and sustainable educational space will also give the Business School and the School of Law the room that we need to grow. The appointment of an award-winning architectural practice signifies our intent to develop an outstanding building and I look forward to working closely with O’Donnell & Tuomey to develop our vision.

Professor Julia Bennell, Deputy Dean of Leeds University Business School
