By connecting innovation, policy and finance, these cutting-edge projects have the potential to collectively be scaled-up to deliver significant reductions to carbon emissions across the world.
The Blavatnik School of Government created an environment where everyone can work and enjoy the space. An important part of the design of the building was to maximise access. The needs of people with sensory cognitive impairments as well as those with mobility impairments, including wheelchair users, were included as a fundamental part of the structure.
The building provides step-free accessibility throughout and Lecture Theatre 1 can host up to twelve wheelchair users at any one time. The basement level has an embedded hearing loop throughout, and large, high-resolution screens to assist with sight impairment.
