The Ernest Rutherford Building (RRSIC – Rutherford Regional Science and Innovation Centre)
The expansive core and central stair are the lungs of this modern learning hub. They encourage movement between floors, on foot, and playfully remind us that learning takes one to elevated places – although only one step at a time. There has clearly been careful consideration of the inter-relationship between formal learning spaces and common areas, with a diverse and interesting series of spaces the result.
