By transforming the Bartlett's facilities, we aim to remain the UK’s number one faculty for built environment education and research. Our newly refurbished home at 22 Gordon Street is just the start.
We don't just want to accommodate our students and schools comfortably. Our programme of transforming the Bartlett’s facilities is aimed at remaining the UK’s number one faculty for built environment education and research. This means providing an environment conducive to creativity and innovation.
22 Gordon Street
22 Gordon Street (formerly Wates House) has been home to The Bartlett School of Architecture and The Bartlett School of Planning since 1975. In December 2016, following a four-year, £30 million project, the School moved back in to its radically transformed home. Students and staff are already making the most of the building's inspiring new studios, shared spaces and cutting-edge facilities, including the new B-made workshop.
UCL has taken a 20-year lease on 32,206sq ft of space in the Olympic Park’s former Broadcasting Centre, now known as Here East. Due to open later in 2017, Here East will see architects, engineers, computer scientists, mathematicians, anthropologists and more working side by side, mixing with nearby entrepreneurs and performers.
The site represents UCL’s first UCL presence in the Olympic Park, ahead of the proposed UCL East development. Boasting an impressive array of transport links, the site's location in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park grants tremendous opportunities for co-creation and collaboration.
The Bartlett School of Architecture has launched four new programmes which will be delivered jointly at Here East and 22 Gordon Street:
- MEng Engineering and Architectural Design
- MArch Design for Performance and Interaction
- MArch Design for Manufacture
- MA Situated Practice
