National Automotive Innovation Centre
University of Warwick, UK
Grant Associates worked with Cullinan Studio Architects and ARUP engineers to design and detail the National Automotive Innovation Centre (NAIC) at Warwick University.
The NAIC will bring together academics, engineers and designers to develop the technologies and products of the future motor industry. It will be a place for researchers, engineers and designers to come together across disciplines and continents to devise new technologies and products.
The design aspires to support the NAIC’s innovation and research by creating a legible landscape that refreshes the mind. Simple walking routes are defined by planted water channels, raised lawns and woodland edges that will increase peoples contact with nature.
The landscape design integrates the proposals into the existing campus by extending and expanding existing access routes and key views, providing the academic community with new amenities.
