The Laboratory brochure

External spaces

In shades of terracotta and concrete representing order in nature and the unity of learning, the recurring pattern connects The Laboratory with the rich colours of the historic Barry Buildings. It pays deference to the iconic buildings but makes its own statement. The building’s footprint wraps around two large internal spaces and is deliberately stepped back and placed in a setting which integrates with the boarding houses and the Barry Buildings. A sympathetic planting scheme complements and enhances the sense of openness and space forming an integral element of the College’s Landscape Plan.

The exterior of The Laboratory reveals the full beauty of the ‘Dragon Curve’ pattern, designed by Peter Randall-Page RA.
