The active frontage is made from innovative ‘Blink’ glass, which is opaque when dormant but becomes clear when an electrical charge is passed through it. This provides a shop window, enabling students to display their work to passers by.

The building also boasts some of the most sustainable and energy-saving features anywhere in the city.

  • the building uses the earth’s ability to store heat in the ground and a pump supplies it to parts of the building
  • solar panels heat the water supply for the building
  • the energy from burning University waste also heats the building, so central heating boilers are not required
  • it has a sophisticated building management system which monitors temperatures so heating is supplied as and when required
  • lights are controlled by passive Infra-red controls and day light sensors
