Educational Nordic Copper ..

The architectural clarity of the centre for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) education at Gresham’s School in Norfolk – incorporating panels of Nordic Brown Light pre-oxidised copper from Aurubis – typifies an innovative approach to education. Enabled by Sir James Dyson, a former pupil at the school, WilkinsonEyre’s design develops and refines the evolving STEAM building typology, and follows a modern aesthetic integrating industrial components with landscaping and low energy systems.

The two-storey exposed steel frame envelopes a mixture of large panels: some glass and others Nordic Brown Light pre-oxidised copper – either opaque or with square perforations adding transparency whilst screening glazing behind.
