Investcorp Building for Oxford University’s Middle East Centre, Oxford, GB

As a shimmering steel tunnel that almost appears to be floating, the new Middle East Centre at St Antony’s College stands out from the rest of the Victorian-style campus at the prestigious Oxford University. Below the metal cladding on this elegantly curved building are ALUTRIX® 600 vapour barrier membranes and HERTALAN® EASY COVER 1.3 mm sealing membranes, which were fashioned to fit the droplet-shaped skylights perfectly.
