Old Addenbrooke's Hospital lay empty for many years while the university decided what to do with it. In the re-development the planners insisted that the façade had to be kept largely intact, but the architect decided, and was allowed, to use bright colours, and this makes it one of the more interesting buildings in Cambridge, but whether it will stand the test of time is not yet clear. Even the back side is elaborately designed and coloured.

The Judge Institute is the business school for the university, it is relatively new but because of the hi-tech industry is prominent locally.
