The University’s long-term position in Cambridge uniquely affords an opportunity to create a sustainable and high quality design place as an urban extension to Cambridge.

The masterplan, designed by AECOM won the Future Projects Award at the World Architecture Festival in 2014.

The masterplan for the area includes an architectural language that has been inspired by the Cambridge character.  College courts, city parks, active street life, residential neighbourhoods, formal and informal landscaped areas that permeate the character of Cambridge will be found in the development. The masterplan for the area has careful consideration of the sense of place and how thresholds, unity, rhythm of the place will all contribute to create a long-lasting place. Consideration of materials will evoke the character of Cambridge.
