All Saints Church, Oxford: detail of pediment and columns

Aldrich, Henry (1648-1710)
NOTES: Completed in 1720, the church of All Saints was designed by Henry Aldrich, the Dean of Christ Church. Nicholas Hawksmoor is thought to be responsible for the tower and the spire after Aldrich's death in 1710. The church was made redundant in 1971 and subsequently converted into Lincoln College library by Robert Potter.

Attenborough Building (formerly Zoology Building), New Museums Site, Cambridge

Arup Associates
NOTES: The original building, just seen on the left, was the Zoology, Metallurgy and Computer Laboratory by Philip Dowson of Arup Associates, 1966-1971. Arups took over from Denys Lasdun's master plan for the New Museums Site, which envisaged three tall towers. Dowson's building included a Zoology Museum. An extension was added by Nicholas Hare Architects in 1986, who were also responsible for renovating the Arup building in 2012. The refurbished building opened in 2018, having been renamed the Attenborough Building.
