Plans for the striking new Humanities Building for the University of Oxford have been submitted to the city council.

Carter Jonas’ planning team for the South West submitted the scheme which is earmarked for the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter.

It will house seven faculties and six libraries of the Humanities department as well as the new Institute for Ethics in AI, the Oxford Internet Institute and a number of research centres and facilities.

There will be a new concert hall, theatre and exhibition space along with spaces for performance and public engagement as part of a new amenity for visitors and residents in Oxford.

The Humanities Cultural Programme will transfer into the new building.
