This exhibition celebrates the groundbreaking design for St Catherine’s College, University of Oxford by Danish architect Arne Jacobsen (1902-71). Jacobsen created a fully integrated design that was not only architectural, but also incorporating furnishings, fixtures and cutlery, a selection of which are showcased here.
Leading Danish manufacturers of the day including Vola A/S, Louis Poulsen and Fritz Hansen all contributed to Jacobsen’s vision of modern living and Ove Arup (1895-1988) acted as consulting engineer.
Curated and designed by Friend and Company Architects, this is part of the British Council’s International Architecture and Design Showcase 2012.
The exhibition runs from 25 June – 31 August 2012, at Arup's Phase 2.
