The new building is positioned facing the edge of the proposed campus green, which is the central feature within the new University of Dundee Campus plan.
The client is the Department of Applied Computing. The client group had a developed a brief showing the space requirements for the building but there main criteria was wanting a ‘non-nerdy, non-geeky’ building. The new building should reflect the department in that Computer programming is creative as well as technical.
Mainly, the building has been designed to be an enjoyable place the learn and work. It also represents the friendly face of computing for people of all ages.
Also our brief from the University was to produce a building which accords with the University’s campus energy strategy, ensuring that life cycle costs, both in terms of running and capital costs, are minimised.

The Dundee Contemporary Arts site has a very narrow street frontage between the Roman Catholic Cathedral and the Georgian house of the Clydesdale Bank. In order to draw visitors into the building Richard Murphy aligned the foyer with the street opposite so that it might form an extension of that public realm in the building.
