Scott and Sara from our team will be on site between the 26 October and 27 October. They will be asking you about your thoughts and ideas for a new Humanities building. If you have the time please stop by and have a chat with them, they are very friendly and you won’t be able to miss them as they will be located in our fabulous inflatable igloo at the following locations

Monday 26/10 (All day)

If you simply can’t spare the time then don’t worry we will be uploading a number of stories and polls over the coming weeks and you can take part there. We are keen to get as many of your views as possible so keep visiting the blog for opportunities and other news.

Looking forward to hearing your views,




At Nomad our team are frequently commissioned to create new entrances space for our clients and they are more difficult than you might think. These spaces are incredibly sensitive as they are a major threshold and they will either act to attract people or to repel them and the difference between this can often be very subtle indeed. A typical entrance space contains some key components. These are,

The reception desk

Information screens

Large-scale sign or 3D brand

Exhibits showcasing the talents or those who inhabit the place.

Recently some of our clients have been experimenting with these spaces and a couple of our larger clients have rebelled against the stereotypical set up. They wanted solutions that were more suited to a 21st century society and although they could not quite define what that means they have thrown the gauntlet down and challenged us.

If a new Humanities Building is constructed we want to know the type of entrance that you would be impressed by. Our designers will be on site on the 26th & 27th Oct, so if you have some time and some ideas you can go and stop and have a chat with them. Alternatively we would love to hear your ideas here in the comments section below.


What if there was a new Humanities building on campus?


‘IF’ is a project which aims to uncover the ideas, opinions, hopes and dreams that students and staff at Warwick might have for teaching, research and learning spaces. We are particularly interested in exploring potential spaces for a new building to house the Faculty of Arts

This blog has been set up to provide a gateway to the project for everyone. This part of the project is being run by us, Nomad RDC LTD. We are a design team who specialise in making people-centered places and the University has asked us to work with you to generate ideas for this exciting new project.

Over the next few weeks, between October and November we plan to reach as many of you as possible. To do this we will be making site visits, running a pop up stall and conducting field events so keep an eye on this blog or follow us on Twitter at (twitter address) for regular updates. We will also be uploading polls, discussions, images and drawings here for your comments. The project has a tight time frame so we would urge you to become involved right away if you want your voice heard.

Thanks for helping out.
