Nottingham Trent University buildings win RIBA award


The Newton and Arkwright buildings at Nottingham Trent University have been recognised for their architectural excellence by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).

The £90m regeneration project has combined and renovated two existing historic Grade II listed structures.

It was praised for its "seamless transition between new and old".

The buildings were officially opened by broadcaster and film maker Sir David Attenborough on 18 May.

He described the architecture as "exciting" while Nottingham Trent University Chancellor Sir Michael Parkinson said Nottingham should be proud of the building.
