We are saddened by the loss of an exceptional personality
In 2015 in collaboration with Zaha Hadid, FRENER & REIFER realised a highly complex freeform building envelope on the university campus of St. Anthony's College, Oxford. The close collaboration with her London-based architectural practice constituted a very valuable enlargement of our experience, so that the sad news of the loss of this strong character affected us all the more...
The project on the university campus of St. Anthony's College presented a challenge for FRENER & REIFER because of its extravagant facade, consisting of free-form, double-curved aluminum sheets. In collaboration with her London-based architectural practice, solutions for all the demanding requirements involved were found - to the full satisfaction of all concerned.
The curved, soft body of the design creates a successful contrast between the new structure and the existing buildings. The opening of the new building, at which the architect herself was present, took place in May 2015.
