The H B Allen Centre

MICA Architects


Submission Summary: The H B Allen Centre brings together the worlds of academia and technology in the same space for the first time. This is a unique collaboration between an Oxford College and the wider world of industry, and the complimentary mixture of spaces and interests are unique to Oxford, and will no doubt be the source of innovation through unanticipated interactions.

The building surrounds a contemporary reinvention of the classic Oxford Quad with a green lawn and biodiverse planting providing respite to the students, researchers and academics, while also performing as a blue roof, mitigating the influence of extreme weather events.
