Thomas Deakin Academy, Peterborough

Project Description

The Thomas Deakin Academy by Foster and Partners Architects won a RIBA award for creating six teaching modules connected internally by a central concourse covered by a partially glazed roof canopy. The roof is built from triangular light reflecting inserts, vents and acoustic inserts and braced by curved steel beams to create a variably lit canopy. At the centre of the building is an oval lecture theatre at ground level with a library above.  The teaching system at the academy is similar to a university with lessons backed by lectures, one-on-one tutorials and seminars for the 2,200 students.  The central concourse joins the six, three-storey colleges housed on site. Each college has a network study area and a glazed classroom that helps illustrate the subjects taught. Passive environmental systems include external brise soleil with concrete internal soffits and opening vents to draw in cooling night air.
