Make's new design draws inspiration from landform 

Make’s masterplan for the University of Nottingham Jubilee Campus will extend and enhance existing facilities to offer students and staff the optimum environment for research, study and leisure. The masterplan creates a new lateral route through the campus in the form of a generous landscaped pedestrian boulevard that links two bodies of water at opposite sides of the site, drawing the theme of nature through the area and providing a focus for leisure activities. International House and the Amenities Building house faculties and teaching rooms and catering and fitness facilities respectively, and are sited in the western academic zone of the campus. These structures rise from the ground plane like natural landforms, an effect heightened by their cladding system which consists of terracotta tiles arranged in bands like geological strata. A third structure, the rounded, metallic shingle-clad Gateway building, houses a range of facilities for new businesses, and straddles the main campus road to link the two halves of the site.
