Making The Future'

To celebrate its 50th anniversary, the University of Sussex is publishing a commemorative book, ‘Making The Future’. The book contains a series of specially commissioned essays covering a diverse range of topics. As one of our longest standing clients, ADP was delighted to be approached to contribute to this publication.

‘Masterplanning the Campus’, written by ADP Partner, Roger FitzGerald, tells the story of how Sussex’s original campus has evolved over the years to meet the University’s changing needs.

The Falmer Campus, originally designed in the 1960s by celebrated architect Sir Basil Spence, reflects Spence’s renowned style – simple forms created from locally sourced materials. Set in stunning Downland landscape, the Modernist buildings are now listed for their iconic architecture.

Set in stunning Downland landscape, the Modernist buildings are now listed for their iconic architecture. Having worked closely with the University since 2004, Roger has played an integral role in the development of Sussex's campus; creating a conservation plan to preserve the architectural integrity of the original buildings; a 20 year masterplan praised by CABE for being 'exemplary'; and several notable new build projects.

Recent additions include Swanborough House, the Fulton Building, and the new Academic and Teaching Building. These ADP buildings make their own mark on the Falmer Campus, whilst being respectful to the historical context in which they are set.

With further developments in store, the University of Sussex continues to thrive and develop with creativity and a strong sense of community. Here at ADP, we are proud to be a part of the University of Sussex's past, present and future.
