Foster & Partners win RIBA award for Thomas Deacon Academy project

The Thomas Deacon 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. 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.

With 2,200 students, the Thomas Deacon Academy is one of the largest projects completed by the practice as part of the government’s academy school building programme.
