Stoke on Trent 6th Form College

Stoke on Trent 6th Form College is an award winning new sixth form college campus integrated into the University quarter at Stoke on Trent. The building is based around two multi-storey “streets” which pass through the entire building, linking inside and outside. The larger, more social street has suspended crystalline learning pods suspended within it. Brightly coloured, these pods contain innovative study spaces and create a dramatic and exciting circulation space.

The narrower street includes a living bamboo wall which runs from the external landscape into the building, providing a serene and peaceful atmosphere. With links to Dudley Zoo, excess bamboo is used to feed the red Pandas there while becoming a source of scientific study within the college.
