For me, this buildind, ust shows a total disrespect for Oxford University. I fail to understand how the College permitted such a mistake. We all know what the birds think about it but unfortunately they do not understand the power of a 'Starchitect' satus. A 'shame' on the planning office!
I would suggest you take a look at the Library in Robinson College , Cambridge . In essence an interpretation of the theme established in Glascow
