Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios has unveiled pictures of the Worcester University Library & History Centre in the UK.

Work on the £60m ($94m) sustainable centre is progressing although some of the university projects received cuts in their capital budgets from the UK Government.

The 11,000m² gold-shingled building is the first purpose-designed, joint-use facility in the UK.

The building was commissioned by the university and the county council and will serve students and the general public.

The facility, which will also feature retail spaces, is expected to open in July 2011.

The building’s form was inspired by the historic Royal Worcester kilns and the Malvern Hills, according to bdonline.co.uk.

The scheme won a prize for its innovative design, which has a laminated timber roof, saving two months of design work.

University capital budgets are expected to be cut by 15%, according to an announcement earlier this month by the Higher Education Funding Council for England.
