Libeskind Reveals Timber Physics Building for Durham University

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.
