building as a case study The building is a Sustainable Construction Resource and Learning Centre which aims to promote sustainability in its widest sense and act as a hub for the north of England. It is located within the Fruit Market development area in Kingston upon Hull on the estuary where the River Hull meets the River Humber just south of the A63 which passes through the centre of the city. The building is broken down into three massing blocks which are joined by a central atrium for public use. The separate blocks can be broken down into two halves as there are two main processes which function through the building: 1. Educational: The westerly (Block 1) and southerly block (Block 2) which house the process of design, education, CPD, general support, the buildingâ€™s admin and the building services. 2. Experimental: Which is the north-easterly block (Block 3) which houses the physical exploration warehouse and its general amenities. This area of the building is intended as an inspirational motivator for visitors and regular users of the building and can be seen at choice intervals from various areas of the rest of the building. proposed site plan
