Work starts on futuristic Oxford University building
11:10am Thursday 31st January 2013 in News
HER form-bending visions have made the Baghdad-born architect Dame Zaha Hadid the world’s most famous woman architect.
And yesterday she was in Oxford for the ground-breaking ceremony marking the start of work on a “suspended bridge” she is creating at St Antony’s College, Woodstock Road, made possible by an £11m donation.
The three-storey building will form a bridge between numbers 66 and 68 Woodstock Road, providing a new 125-seat lecture theatre, along with a new library, for the college’s Middle East Centre.
Dame Zaha is best known in the UK for designing the Aquatics Centre at the London Olympic Games.
