Andrew Wiles Building, Oxford (4)
Extract from following website -
www.cherwell.org/news/2013/10/08/new-70-million-maths-building-for-oxford-university
“Oxford University’s new Mathematical Institute facility, the Andrew Wiles Building, was officially opened on 3rd October 2013. The dedicated building will be at the centre of the department’s and its students’ academic life, serving for all 900 undergraduates, whilst boasting workspace for over 500 researchers and support staff, and featuring six lecture theatres which will also benefit the university as a whole. The building's design, by Rafael Viñoly Architects, aims to be architecturally sympathetic to the Oxford skyline. Named after one of Oxford's most celebrated mathematicians- Professor Sir Andrew Wiles, who famously proved Fermat's Last Theorem- the building reflects further mathematical influences in its architecture, from the paving patterns conceived of by Sir Roger Penrose, another Oxford mathematician, to the intricate canopies and windows.”
