LIBESKIND’S LARCH Futuristic physics centre lands in Durham


A timber-clad physics centre organised as stacked, sloped blocks has opened at Durham University in Durham, UK. The £11.5m Ogden Centre for


Fundamental Physics was designed by Studio Libeskind (New York) with Arup behind the project’s complex struc- tural engineering. The highly sustainable centre spans nearly 2,500 m2


dynamic building within tight programme requirements. Light and openness is at the core of the design; at every move in the design process we incorporated simple, yet robust materials and considered the users’ experience to create this important building for Durham University.” A spiral in plan, the building sports a


across three


naturally-lit floors and features a 100-seat auditorium, flexible communal spaces, showers and bike racks for staff and students, and office space for 140 staff. Daniel Libeskind, founder of Studio


Libeskind, said: “This project is an example of how to design a highly-sustainable,


ventilated timber rainscreen punctuated with linear bands of openable strip windows and a series of outdoor terraces, while canted curtain walls bookend the structure. The spiral form of the building required


column locations to be carefully considered and some of them are sloped to respond


to the architectural geometry and to allow for flexible room layouts. Internally, massive central skylight lights the lobby and meeting areas while soft grey concrete columns and ceilings are paired with warm wood finishes and frosted glass. The offices have been pushed to the perimeter to benefit from natural light and ventilation. The centre is highly energy efficient: its


exposed concrete ceilings take advantage of the night-purge effect and LED fixtures are used throughout while renewable energy sources such as rainwater harvesting, rooftop photovoltaics and a ground source heat pump were also employed.
