  • Hopkins Architects wins MK:U International Design Competition July 30, 2019

    We are delighted to have won this prestigious competition for a brand new university in Milton Keynes and it is a particular honour bearing in mind the high calibre of the other shortlisted teams. This commission is special because MK:U presents a unique opportunity to re-think higher education through its radical curriculum focussing on the digital economy. By bringing new academic and commercial activity, jobs and social life to the town centre we also have the opportunity to renew the civic identity of Milton Keynes, which at 50 years old is once again looking to the future. All our best projects have come about through a collaborative process and the next step is to test the ideas we had during the competition with the University leaders, local Council and people of Milton Keynes. Our team are all very enthusiastic about getting started on the creative process together.
