ARC, Hull Centre for the Built Environment, Hull | Niall McLaughlin Architects

Hull is a seaside town that has suffered form the collapse of the local fishing and shipping industry. The brief called for an innovative, iconic, movable building to house a new centre for the built environment in Hull. The building is relocatable and will be moved from key site to key site over a 20-year period. The centre will provide opportunities to showcase building and environmental developments arising from regeneration activities in the Humber region. We collaborated with local industries, construction companies, suppliers and labour to ensure maximum advantage for local business, and to give the sense that the building is from Hull, and would have only been possible to build in Hull.
