Steel-framed Dyson innovation centre opens to pupils
Located in Holt, Norfolk, Gresham’s School has opened its new Dyson Building, a centre for science, technology, engineering, arts and maths.
Funded by the James Dyson Foundation (James Dyson is a former Gresham’s pupil) the £19M centre will help educate and train future scientists and engineers.
The building is said to include classes that open to an interactive and welcoming courtyard, which is not solely a circulation space. The central areas of the school feature art hubs and open-plan communal break-out spaces. The internal configuration of the rooms has the workshops of the art department separate to the science department for sound-proofing reasons and external access matters.
