Thanks to two tours of Oxford in the company of J (my architectural friend) and some independent research into the history of a local church, I’ve started to learn something about how to “read” buildings.
So on this basis, I’m going to stick my neck out and risk a description of “uncompromisingly modern” in respect of the new Physics building in Oxford University’s Science Area (next to the Parks), which we managed to miss on both our perambulations.
For ages, it was just a very deep hole and then suddenly seemed to be nearing completion. I think it’s brilliant and, as a bonus, the leaves which, even in August, were acquiring an autumnal tint provided a welcome “arty shot”.
