The recognition reflects the passion, direction and support that the university has shown Pascall+Watson throughout the design and construction process.
Samantha Brewer who works as an architect for Pascall+Watson and was the project lead on the Film and Media Centre said: “Prior to working for Pascall+Watson, I was a student of the School of Architecture at UCA Canterbury. Having progressed with the university from a student to a working professional, it has always been a pleasure to work with and alongside them. The university constantly strives to provide the best facilities for its creative student cohort by using a wholly collaborative process throughout all stages of design. The Film & Media Centre project was led by creative, artistic and highly skilled academics, whose input throughout was enthusiastic and insightful.”
