Studio Daniel Libeskind unveils new £10 million landmark physics building at Durham University 

Studio Daniel Libeskind (SDL) has unveiled plans for the new £10 million building at Durham University in the UK which will house the world-renowned Ogden Centre for Fundamental Physics.

The world-renowned architect was chosen to design the building, which will be located next to the Physics department on South Road, Durham, last summer.

Residents will be able to have their say on the designs at two public consultations on 16 and 22 January.

The unveiling of the plans coincides with the announcement of two major gifts towards the project; £3.35 million from the Ogden Trust and £1.5 million from the Wolfson Foundation.  

The new building has been made necessary by the Centre's rapid growth and academic success, and will enable it to maintain its leading global position in the decades ahead.

Its unique design will reflect the international standing of the two Research Institutes incorporated in the centre - the Institute for Computational Cosmology, one of the world's premier theoretical cosmology groups, and the only Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology in the world - giving a clear and recognisable identity in the context of Durham's unique architectural heritage.

 "The new Centre will not only allow outstanding research to flourish but will also be housed in a distinctive and exciting building," said Paul Ramsbottom, chief executive of The Wolfson Foundation.

The original Ogden Centre for Fundamental Physics, established by an earlier £2m gift from the Ogden Trust, was opened in 2002.
