“We are delighted to be acknowledged by the DIA for this project,” said James.

“These awards are an important commentary on the recent design output within the state, and it’s particularly satisfying when considering the high standard of entries and the experience and reputation of the judging panel this year”.

“Furthermore, the J. Robin Warren Library represents a truly collaborative design process that involved a high level of engagement with students, library staff and the wider faculty, so this commendation points towards a successful partnership with the key stakeholders in the project”.
