Oxford University plans Tinbergen building redevelopment


Oxford University Tinbergen Building

The University is developing plans for the construction of a state-of-the-art building for Experimental Psychology, Plant Sciences and Zoology on the site of the existing, now empty, Tinbergen building on the junction of St Cross Road and South Parks Road.

The Tinbergen building was the University’s largest teaching and research building before its closure in February 2017, due to the discovery of asbestos throughout the structure and in inaccessible areas. Its replacement, provisionally named the Life and Mind Building, will be the largest building project the University has ever undertaken.

A design team are now developing the concept design and intend to submit a planning application to Oxford City Council in late 2019.
