23-Jun-2010 The Think Tank at Lincoln Innovation Centre is dressed for battle, contours evoke imagery of the army tank. Rivets are featured as a design statement to further enhance the military feel, with the name of the building itself adding to the overall impression.

But Rockpanel Chameleon brings an extra dimension to the building. Its pearlescent paint system embodies the building’s purpose: innovation. When viewed from one angle, the facade panels are predominantly a military-style grey and green. From straight on they give the impression of bronze, and in direct sunlight the sun they have a dazzling orange glow.

“The tank reference is not meant to be visible to every visitor, but I like buildings that echo their surroundings,” says Architect Julia Barfield.

The new Innovation Centre in Lincoln, designed by Marks Barfield
Architects, draws on the city’s strong historical associations.
Lincoln was where the first tanks were built in World War one.
Clearly there is no better place for The Think Tank to sit.
