The competition was looking for design solutions to transform a 19th Century foundry into the new home for the Museum of Concrete Art and Design, as part of the wider regeneration of the foundry site, which will house new University buildings and an Audi Academy.

Stanton Williams’ proposal maintains the primary volume of the foundry hall as an exhibition space. Ancillary spaces and specialized areas – small exhibition rooms, foyer, café, services etc – wrap around this display hall, maintaining its integrity at the heart of the scheme. The building form and materials reflect the concept of casting as a form of memory, using cast materials to unify the new building with its physical and historical context and reinforce its simple, robust character.

The primary material of walls and roof of the new building is a monolithic insitu concrete. Where the new roof terminates at ridge level, the north and south elevations are clad in ridged cast iron panels, which are left to weather.

The City and Museum will now enter into a consultation period with the winning architects to decide which scheme to take forward. A decision is expected before the summer break.

Other international museum projects of Stanton Williams include the Stadtmuseum in Berlin, Germany, and the Grand Musee d’Art in Nantes, France.
