The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter features the redevelopment of St Hilda’s College at the University of Oxford.
London studio Gort Scott amazed readers with its revamp of the university campus, which saw two buildings added in a bid to reconnect the college with its riverfront setting.
The redevelopment provides new accommodation, teaching and event spaces for St Hilda’s, while also attempting to unify the campus’ string of existing buildings with the landscape.
One commenter called it a “worthy candidate for the Stirling Prize”.
Other stories in this week’s newsletter include a round up of ten homes where verdant indoor trees create calming interiors, an exclusive interview with Nabr co-founder Bjarke Ingels, who explained how his housing startup intends to revolutionise the construction sector, and a wood-clad house in Minnesota that takes its cues from Japanese architecture.
