New Ox­ford

Exclusively British - - MADE IN BRITAIN -

The twenty-first cen­tury has been one of the busiest ar­chi­tec­turally in Ox­ford’s long his­tory. The Said Busi­ness School with its gop­u­ram-like tower was cre­ated next to the rail­way sta­tion in 2001. The cir­cu­lar Blavat­nik School of Govern­ment – nick­named the “con­crete marsh­mal­low” by lo­cals - was opened in 2015 and around the same time the Ob­ser­va­tory Quar­ter was opened up to the pub­lic to re­veal a su­perb eigh­teen­th­cen­tury ob­ser­va­tory that had been lost from view dur­ing twen­ti­eth­cen­tury de­vel­op­ment. Wher­ever you walk in the cen­tre of Ox­ford, the old and new com­bine, some­times in the same build­ing.
