Official opening of the new 10 West building designed by AWW for the University of Bath

The new 10 West building designed by AWW was officially opened on Wednesday 20 July by eminent psychologist Dame Vicki Bruce, an expert on human face perception and person memory. Speaking at the event, Dame Vicki Bruce emphasised how the facilities would inspire students in the department.

Head of Department for the Department for Psychology, Bas Verplanken, said of the opening:

It is wonderful to have moved into the building to enjoy the fantastic space it provides. We are looking forward to the Department of Psychology expanding its research facilities now that we are in situ.

The facilities will help accelerate research to tackle a range of pressing global challenges of today, varying from dismantling the barriers of autism, helping blind people develop ways to map their world, applying technology to health behaviours, dealing with mental health problems, to promoting more healthy and sustainable lifestyles.
