Daniel Libeskind has released images of a new “landmark” building planned for Durham University’s Ogden Centre for Fundamental Physics in England. The £10 million facility, which will house the industry-leading Institute for Computational Cosmology and Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology, was awarded to Libeskind after the New York-based architect won a competition for the project last July. When completed in 2015, the timber building is expected to “complement” the traditional buildings that surround it while serving as an exemplar for sustainable design.

Daniel Libeskind has been selected to design a new “landmark” building for Durham University’s Ogden Centre for Fundamental Physics in England. The state-of-the-art facility, which will house the industry-leading Institute for Computational Cosmology and Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology, is expected to “complement” the traditional buildings that surround it while serving as an exemplar for sustainable design. Completion is planned for December 2015, depending on planning permission.

AD Interview: Philip Freelon / The Freelon Group Architects

10:05 - 5 December, 2011

During the 2009 AIA Convention in San Francisco, I had the chance to see a very interesting group of architects, Emerging Voices. That group, in my opinion, represented the new generation of US architects who are advancing the profession with new ideas and innovative projects. Several of those architects have already been interviewed and featured on ArchDaily, but it took me a while to finally meet one of them: Philip G. Freelon. We met during the 2011 AIA Convention in New Orleans, where I had the opportunity to interview him. I really liked this interview, where Philip shares valuable insights on running a firm and his views on the role of the architect.
