We are delighted to announce that Darwin’s John Bradfield Court, designed by Allies and Morrison, has won a RIBA East Award 2024 for its regional importance as a piece of architecture.

The citation from the Awards Jury describes why the building and court has been such an effective addition to the site.

“Nestled on the banks of the River Cam, Darwin College, Cambridge is a unique assembly of 18th and 19th century domestic architecture, distinguished 20th century collegiate buildings, and riverside landscape.

John Bradfield Court is the most recent addition to this rich collage of buildings and layering of historical periods. It defines the edge of the College closest to the city, creating a new College entrance and adding the distinctive sculptural form of a new multipurpose space.”
