Business School Bulding of Brighton University
Brighton University, Lewes Road, Moulsecoomb Campus, Brighton
This impressive building was created in a new area of the University of Brighton dedicated to offering students a real business and innovation experience around the former Preston Barracks.
Inspired by the iconic Brighton Pier and the flocks of birds it attracts, the 50,000 custom-made ceramic tiles on the façade represent the process of change that students undergo during university life.
Architect Hassell designed an impressive tiled facade that echoes the murmuring flocks of starlings seen over Brighton Pier on winter nights.
