Splendid library in Oxford – remarkable design by Zaha Hadid

February 6, 2013 Comments Off


This collection of renders is the basis of the work for the construction of an extension at St. Antony’s College, University of Oxford. Yes, you are right, this is a project designed by the architect Zaha Hadid. The project creates a connection between two existing buildings and will house a new library, a research center, warehouses, underground auditorium, cafeteria, and reading rooms, with a total area of 1,200 square meters.

The project has been the hallmark of this true architectural talent. We find abundant surfaces, both inside and outside the building. A part of the exterior is finished with stainless steel. The exterior features  several skylights shaped ‘Water Drop’, plus some glass surfaces on the front.
The project is in progress and once we have more information, we will definitely review it again. Meanwhile, look at the amazing pictures and you will find out that this is an impressive architectural project!
