Tyndall Avenue Public Realm, University of Bristol
Nicholas Pearson Associates acts as lead designer for the complete renewal and pedestrianisation of the Tyndall Avenue public realm to create the ‘Social Heart’ of the University. The project integrates with the adjacent Royal Fort Gardens and draws the atmosphere of the gardens into Tyndall Avenue, creating a space that is full of life, activity and character.
We initially participated in the Tyndall Place masterplan to assimilate the main student focus and facilities into the new Tyndall Place. The bold design re-orientates the central part of the University to deliver a key element of the University Strategy. We undertook initial concept designs and subsequently led a multidisciplinary design team, providing landscape and ecological services and visualisation and flythrough deliverables. Working alongside planning, transport and infrastructure specialists, we undertook multiple consultation events with the University, local and statutory stakeholders. The project is being assessed for a CEEQUAL award.
