Several staff from the Oxford office attended the RIBA’s 2017 lecture to open the annual “Oxford Open Doors” event. This year it was delivered by Alison Brooks of Alison Brooks Architects, in their new 6,000m² Cohen Quadrangle recently completed for Exeter College, Oxford. Entitled “Future Heritage: Collegiate Architecture for the 21st Century”, the lecture was an interesting review of the challenges they had faced in working on this complex and constrained site to convert and expand the former Ruskin College site with its Listed Building, into a hardworking contemporary academic complex.
