The project relocates several student support functions from across Cambridge into a single, consolidated location, while the replacement Examination Halls also provide flexible seminar and multi-use space outside of the exams season, complementing the refurbished 250-seat historic lecture theatre. Following detailed dialogue with the University, city planners and Historic England, the original Examination Halls portal is to be re-used to form the new entrance, in order to preserve a memory of the significance of the site and its function in the evolution of the university. The implementation of the New Museums Site masterplan will improve the surrounding public realm through the demolition of several less significant buildings. This will see the creation of a series of urban courts with better connections to the city and wider university.
The visit starts with a presentation in the first floor seminar room. Scroll through the images for location plan and other details.
