dame margaret barbour building

client: gss architecture

brief

I was commissioned by GSS Architecture  to photograph the 97,000 sqft six-storey new teaching and learning building at Newcastle University. The Dame Margaret Barbour Building provides education facilities available for use by the whole University, along with specialist spaces for Sport and Exercise Science, Human Nutrition and Dietetics, the School of Psychology and the School of Medical Education. The client asked me to provide short videos in each space to demonstrate the flow of poeple using the building.

Using architectural photography techniques I produced a collection of images, video and drone imagery that bring this fantastic building to life. I visited the site several times to capture different lighting conditions at daytime and twilight. The inclusion of students and staff showcases the architectural features and brings movement to images.

outcome

The images are used on the GSS website, including the homepage and a dedicated project area, as well as printed material and case studies. The images are used for award submissions including the Constructing Excellence in the North East awards when the building won the award for Integration and Collaborative Working.
