The University of Glasgow is planning to construct an £86 million facility for the Adam Smith Business School and the university's postgraduate-taught community (PGT) in the United Kingdom. Designed by Hassell to promote cross-pollination with industry and government stakeholders, the 125,000-sf building will be arranged in three interconnected stacks for teaching, research, and collaboration. The six-story project will offer innovative learning spaces including a data visualization room, a trading suite, and technology enhanced active learning (TEAL) classrooms. Research areas will comprise a combination of private workspaces and dynamic shared project zones. Featuring a central atrium and multiple light wells, the building also house meeting rooms, study spaces, and the Hothouse, a reconfigurable venue for workshops, hackathons, career fairs, and student activities. Construction is expected to begin by late 2020 with completion slated for 2022.
