Brick Awards 2023

Yoko Ono Lennon Centre wins Architects Choice at Brick Awards 2023!

The Brick Development Association’s Brick Awards celebrate the world’s greatest brick architecture and craftsmanship. Every year the competition welcomes hundreds of projects across 18 categories, entered by the world’s leading architects, specialist contractors and developers. Four of the awards are judged and voted for independently: Supreme, Sustainability, Architects’ Choice and Contractors’ Choice.


The Yoko Ono Lennon Centre is a unique teaching and performance building at the University of Liverpool designed by Liverpool School of Architecture graduates.
The new facility includes The Tung Auditorium – a world class music performance space – together with two large lecture theatres, seminar rooms, cafe space, a public facing linear park and a new outdoor space for the university. With a floor area totalling around 6,500 square metres the building was planned around a careful understanding of the site and an innovative response to a challenging brief (and budget).

The lecture theatres were arranged vertically, which allowed for a much smaller building footprint – freeing up the site to deliver a linear public park alongside the main arterial route adjacent to the south elevation (Grove Street). This also allowed for the large volume and height of Tung Auditorium to be placed adjacent to the teaching spaces, separated by the main atrium circulation space.


The judges said

A bold design choice to stack theatres and acoustically separate them, to give back external spaces to the surroundings. A very impressive building on all levels.
