CUBRIC shortlisted for National Eisteddfod Gold Medal
7 July 2017
Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre (CUBRIC) is one of just four projects shortlisted for this year’s National Eisteddfod Gold Medal for Architecture.
The Gold Medal for Architecture recognises the importance of architecture in the nation's culture and celebrates the highest standards of architectural design in the country.
The shortlist of four building projects, located across Wales, was unveiled at a reception hosted by the National Eisteddfod of Wales and supported by the Design Commission for Wales and Royal Society of Architects.
After further deliberation over the coming month, just one of the shortlisted buildings may be awarded the Gold Medal for Architecture on 5 August 2017 at the National Eisteddfod of Wales in Anglesey.
CUBRIC, designed by the global IBI Group, has already won a clutch of awards including Project of the Year and Design through Innovation at the 2017 RICS Awards and a major science buildings award at the 2017 S-Lab Awards.
CUBRIC is home to powerful MRI scanning facilities, brain stimulation equipment, sleep laboratories, modern offices and break-out spaces.
The £44m facility was officially opened by Her Majesty The Queen in 2016.
