Building blocks

The Mathematical Institute at Oxford has exciting plans for a new building to bring together everyone from its current sites. Designed by the internationally renowned architect Rafael Vinoly, it is the first build on the larger University redevelopment of the Radcliffe Infirmary site on Woodstock Road. Needless to say, this will complement the beautiful listed buildings.

The Mathematical Institute has secured a generous lead donation, which will be matched by the University and go some way towards the building cost of £70m. However, a substantial amount still needs to be raised.

A large proportion of Oxford mathematicians notably join the actuarial profession and maintain close Oxford links. As a member of the Development Committee, I have been asked to seek help and support for the new building from the actuarial profession. The actuarial courses at Oxford are among the most heavily subscribed options for both mathematics and statistics undergraduates. The new building will provide an open and inviting working environment for students, academics and visitors alike.
