Manchester School of Art and Drapers' Academy were announced as RIBA National Award Winners on June 19th.
This major extension to the Manchester School of Art, which began life in the 1830s, has provided an engaging and lively environment for students and staff to work and study and has helped re-assert both the Art School and the University’s profile on the national stage.
Drapers’ Academy is a new building for a new educational institution replacing an existing secondary school on the edge of the post-war new-town edge-of-London development of Harold Hill. The Academy has been designed to provide first-class educational facilities for 900 pupils in years 7 to 11 and a 200 pupil sixth form.
