The Radcliffe Camra: Alternative Photographs

Oxford Photowalk: Dept. of Biochemistry

The new buildings for Oxford's Department of Biochemistry opened in 2008. They are architecturally stunning, designed to promote collaboration and interaction. It's adorned with funky leather chair clad group work spaces, glass birds hanging from the ceiling, futuristic lifts, and insect frosted glass.
