I’m guessing that the new Jericho Health Centre by Hawkins Brown Architects won’t be to everyone’s taste but for me at least it’s good to see some contemporary Architecture being built in this part of Oxford. A new building by Zaha Hadid has recently started on site and a Herzog and de Meuron building has currently been submitted for Planning Permission.

If anyone else has Hawkins Brown shots I started a group for them : www.flickr.com/groups/hawkinsbrown/pool

From Wikipedia : "Jericho Health Centre is a health centre on Walton Street in Oxford, England.[ It is named after the district of Jericho, just northwest of central Oxford. It is part of the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS).

In June 2012, New Radcliffe House, further south on the opposite side of Walton Street, on the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter development site, was completed by the construction company Longcross. The centre moved into the ground floor of this new building in 2012. The architects were Hawkins Brown, based in London and the building cost £11 million. Its location has opened up a view of the historic Grade I listed Radcliffe Observatory from Walton Street."
