The Mathematical Institute, designed by Rafael Viñoly Architects and constructed by Laing O'Rourke, formally opened on 3 October 2013. It is called the Andrew Wiles Building in acknowledgement of one of Oxford’s most distinguished mathematicians. Mathematics is embedded in many aspects of the design and function of the building from the Penrose Tiling at the entrance to the crystals in the Atria.
The Mathematical Institute is located within the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter of the University of Oxford.
The Radcliffe Observatory Quarter is a 10-acre plot of land in central Oxford. It lies between Woodstock Road and Walton Street, with Somerville College to the south and Green Templeton College to the north.
