A Colourful Construction

The colour red is appearing more and more in architectural constructions...

.. and looking at these stunning buildings on the Nottingham University campus, I can see why.

 Wedge-shaped and appearing to emerge from the ground, The International House and the Amenities Building is clad in large panels, each individually laser cut to size. The dynamic facades clad in red and brown terracotta tiles which are randomly arranged to form a distinctive new focal point.

Designed by Make Architects, the buildings are built on a site that previously had industrial use. Take a look and let us know your thoughts below.
