Carnegie Pavilion, Headingley
Christian Richters Download Original
Dual-use higher education and sports facility. Cricket pavilion with a capacity of 1,000 combined with university faculty embedding itself within the surrounding community
The Carnegie Pavilion accommodates Leeds Metropolitan Universities School of Tourism, Hospitality and Events, where students will benefit from direct exposure to real life sporting events and hospitality.
The development incorporates a full-scale teaching kitchen as well as lecture theatres and faculty offices. Students of digital journalism will also be based in the building, and will work hands on with the hi-tech facilities of the new media centre, designed to meet the latest standards for both TV and radio broadcasting.
The dual-use 150 seat auditorium on major match days, converts into a 100 seat press box for cricket journalists, with uninterrupted views of the cricket action.
Co-occupation of the building (over 70 per cent of the rooms have been designed for dual-use) dramatically reduces its running costs, as well as its carbon footprint, when compared with two separate buildings.
