Key Buildings in Berkshire, southeast England, UK

post updated 25 Feb 2021

Building Developments in Reading

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Reading Buildings, Berkshire. We aim to include projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed Reading buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across Berkshire. The focus is on contemporary buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.

We have 1 page of Reading Architecture selections with links to many individual project pages.

The design for the Academy buildings will separate general teaching spaces from those with specific servicing requirements, the space being divided into learning clusters and central facilities, all situated at a comfortable distance from the site’s boundaries.
