New Year Rhodes Building Oxford

Wednesday, 1 January 2014 / Projects

Happy New Year. Here is a picture of the Rhodes building at Oxford, nicely wrapped up.

Autumn 2014 this will emerge as a copper-clad origami extra storey above a Grade II* listed building.

The roof will be clad in bright copper. Gradually it will grow old: complexly brown and green underneath the view of St Mary’s Church, whose spire you can see top left.

Oriel like many medieval educational foundations is dedicated to Mary Mother of God. Education and empowerment of mothers is the key co-relator to human overpopulation. More education, more power to mothers, more balance and sustainability. Simple.

Peace and prosperity for 2014 from all at MBA
