Buildings of Nuffield College, Oxford

The buildings of Nuffield College, one of the colleges of the University of Oxford,
are to the west of the city centre of Oxford, England, and stand on the site of the
basin of the Oxford Canal. Nuffield College was founded in 1937 after a donation to
the University by the car manufacturer Lord Nuffield; he gave land for the college,
as well as £900,000 (approximately £246 million in present-day terms) to build and
endow it. The architect Austen Harrison, who had worked in Greece and Palestine,
was appointed by the University to design the buildings. His initial design, heavily
influenced by Mediterranean architecture, was rejected by Nuffield, who called it
"un-English"[1] and refused to allow his name to be associated with it. Harrison
reworked the plans, aiming for "something on the lines of Cotswold domestic
architecture",[1] as Nuffield wanted.

Construction of the second design began in 1949 and was finished in 1960. Progress
was hampered by post-war building restrictions, and the effects of inflation on
Nuffield's donation led to various cost-saving changes to the plans. In one change,
the tower, which had been planned to be ornamental, was redesigned to hold the Nuffield College, facing New Road,
college's library. It was the first tower built in Oxford for 200 years and is about 150 with the library tower topped by a
flèche. The main entrance to the

the hall, library and administrative offices in the other. The chapel has stained glass
windows designed byJohn Piper.

The architectural historian Sir Howard Colvin said that Harrison's first design was Oxford's "most notable architectural casualty of
the 1930s";[2] it has also been described as a "missed opportunity" to show that Oxford did not live "only in the past".[3] Reaction to
the architecture of the college has been largely unfavourable. In the 1960s, it was described as "Oxford's biggest monument to barren
reaction".[4] The tower has been described as "ungainly",[5] and marred by repetitive windows. The travel writer Jan Morris wrote
that the college was "a hodge-podge from the start".[6] However, the architectural historian Sir Nikolaus Pevsner, although
unimpressed with most of the college, thought that the tower helped the Oxford skyline and predicted it would "one day be loved".[7]
The writer Simon Jenkins doubted Pevsner's prediction, and claimed that "vegetation" was the "best hope" for the tower – as well as
the rest of the college.[8]

Lord Nuffield's donation

The history of Nuffield College dates from 16 November 1937, when the university
entered a Deed of Covenant and Trust with Lord Nuffield.[9] Nuffield, known as
William Morris before he was raised to the peerage, was an industrialist and the
founder of Morris Motors, which was based in Cowley, east Oxford.[8][9] For the
creation of Nuffield College and for his other donations (which included funding a
chair of Spanish studies and donating £2 million in 1936[n 1] for a school of medical
research),[11] he was described in 1949 by an editorial in The Times as "the greatest
benefactor of the University since the Middle Ages".[12] He donated land on New
Road, to the west of the city centre near the mound of Oxford Castle, on the site of
Nuffield College from the air, facing
the largely disused basin of the Oxford Canal.[13] In 1937, The Times described the
Oxford Castle
half-mile between the railway station and the city (an area including the site of the
proposed college) as "something between a refuse heap and a slum";[14] Nuffield
had originally bought the canal basin to beautify that part of the city before he had the idea of building a college to accomplish
this.[15] As well as the land, Nuffield gave £900,000[n 2] to build the college and to provide it with an endowment fund.

His plan was to create a college that specialised in engineering and business methods to provide a link between academia and
industry, for which he initially offered the University £1 million;[n 3] £100,000[n 4] was used for a physical chemistry laboratory
(completed in 1941), of which he approved. However, although he was persuaded to put the remainder towards a college for social
science studies instead, he still felt "cheated".[16] He later described the college as "that bloody Kremlin", "where left-wingers study
at my expense".[17] He was sufficiently pleased with the work of the college to leave it most of his remaining fortune (which was
more than £3 million) when he died in 1963, although most of the bequest did not reach the college as it was needed to pay
inheritance tax on Nuffield's estate.[18][19]

First design
Administration of Nuffield's donation was the responsibility of the University, as the
college did not become an independent body until after the Second World War. A
sub-committee, consisting of three heads of Oxford colleges (Sir William Beveridge
from University College; Alfred Emden from St Edmund Hall; and Linda Grier from
Lady Margaret Hall), was appointed to choose the architect; Emden appears to have
played the major part in the group's work.[20] Eight architects were initially asked to
compete, including Louis de Soissons, Vincent Harris, Austen Harrison, Charles
Holden, Edward Maufe, and Hubert Worthington. All but Holden and Maufe
submitted photographs of their work, and the sub-committee then recommended

time, Harrison had never worked in Britain: although he had qualified there, he had quadrangle and the hall
practised in Greece and Palestine.[21] Indeed, the college seems to have been his
only project in the country, and remains his best known work, along with his later
University of Ghana. Harrison was not given any restrictions or limitations on style; Nuffield agreed to Harrison's appointment, but

it was reported that the "general idea" was that the college buildings should be sited behind gardens, similar to the memorial gardens
at Christ Church, Oxford, so that those entering Oxford from the west would be faced with a "beautiful vista of well-planned gardens
seen through railings";[15] this idea did not form part of Harrison's designs.
After Harrison's preliminary studies, it became clear that the proposed site could not contain a college and an institute for social
science research as planned; Nuffield agreed to provide an additional plot of land on the opposite side of Worcester Street.[21]
Harrison proposed to build the college on the main site, with the institute on the second site. The hall was to be at the east end of the
main site, aligned east to west, with a tower at the west end; the upperquadrangle, to the immediate west of the hall and aligned north
to south, would have the Warden's Lodging at the north end and the chapel at the south end; steps would lead down from the upper
quadrangle into the lower quadrangle, again aligned east to west, with the main entrance at the far east end of the lower quadrangle.
The proposed institute would face the main college entrance across Worcester Street.[23] The sub-committee recommended that
Harrison's plans be adopted in January 1939, and a model of the design was shown to Nuffield in June 1939 – he had been abroad for
much of the intervening period.[24][25]

Harrison's design had "little that was English, still less that was recognisably
Oxonian", said the architectural historian Sir Howard Colvin.[25] There were no
pitched roofs, battlements, or pinnacles.[22] Instead, the proposed building had "a
strongly Mediterranean character",[25] inspired by medieval buildings in that region.
White Portland stone was the chosen building material; there were to be "stark"
external walls and flat roofs, and a large semi-circular doorway at the main entrance,
with facetted voussoirs demonstrating the influence of the Muslim architecture of
Norman Sicily. The tower, which was to have an internal dome and an external

hall have rivalled those of Christ Church. Although Harrison had not finished plans for
the common rooms, the initial sketches had oriental touches, including fireplaces
reminiscent of the Topkapı Palace in Istanbul. The Warden's Lodging would have
been "one of the most handsome and commodious of its kind".[25] However, Colvin thought that the chapel design was better suited
to Mediterranean sunlight than Oxford gloom.[25]

Colvin said that the "relationship between the principal buildings" was "elegantly worked out" and, "in a university of self-contained
spaces", a design using two intersecting axes – one from the entrance to the hall and tower, the other from the chapel to the lodging –
"represented an innovation in planning that was highly effective".[25] Colvin's view was that the failure to construct the college
according to this "impressive"[25] design led to it being Oxford's "most notable architectural casualty of the 1930s".[2] Had it been
built, he said, it "would have taken its place among the major architectural monuments of Oxford".

Second design
Nuffield was dismayed by the model of Harrison's plans, as the buildings were not in
the general Oxford collegiate style that he was known to favour.[22] After a meeting
with the University's Vice-Chancellor, A. D. Lindsay, Nuffield wrote to him on
15 August 1939 to say that he felt "obliged to adhere to my adverse judgement of the
plans".[1] The design was "un-English and out of keeping with the best tradition of Harrison's second design of 1939,
Oxford architecture", said Nuffield, adding that "if a building of this type were to be showing the proposed buildings for

buildings of the university and colleges, but instead different designs had been used,
with varying modifications, over many centuries. Only a compromise would suit "a
20th century donor with an industrial background who sighs for romance, a committee of economists who are after results [and] the
governing committee of a University steeped in its tradition".[1] Nevertheless, Harrison agreed to attempt to satisfy Nuffield's desire
for "something on the lines of Cotswold domestic architecture",[1] and produced a second design. The amount of accommodation
provided was reduced. The main entrance was moved from the west to the south of the college, under the chapel; it was to have an
arcaded vestibule, allowing the quadrangle to be seen from the street, as Nuffield wanted. The flat roofs were replaced with pitched
roofs with gable ends and dormer windows. The staircase leading to the hall was removed, and the hall repositioned on ground level,
without aisles but with ahammerbeam roof of oak trusses. The tower, which would now contain the common room, was moved from
the area of the former hall staircase to the east end of the chapel.[26] When the plans were shown to Nuffield in early 1940, the only
change that he requested before giving his approval was for a "more conventional" tower to replace the spire on Harrison's design.

Construction and completion

The Second World War meant that construction work on the main college buildings
could not begin until 21 April 1949, when the foundation stone was laid; work on
the warden's residence had begun in October 1948.[9][28] Before the buildings were
erected, the college operated from rented houses elsewhere in Oxford, on Banbury
Road and Woodstock Road.[28] There were further changes to Harrison's second
design, as not only had inflation between 1937 and 1949 reduced the value of
Nuffield's original donation, but additional savings had to be made in the difficult
post-war economic situation.[13][27] A scale model, created in 1949 as work started,
showed the alterations: a shortened tower, a plainer main entrance, and no arcades

within the quadrangles. Further changes were made once work was under way,
with the Nuffield flèche rising above
including the indefinite postponement of construction of the institute opposite the the tree at left
college. The plans of the tower were altered so that it would hold a library
, instead of
being purely ornamental, windows were added at regular intervals, and it was topped
by a copper flèche, or small spire.[27][29]

A further delay in construction was announced in 1951, when labour and materials were restricted because of a government
rearmament drive.[30] Work to complete the quadrangle, including a hall, kitchen and the library tower, began in 1955 at a cost of
£200,000.[n 5] This money was donated to the college by the Nuffield Foundation upon Lord Nuffield's recommendation.[24] Until it
was required for books, the fellows of the college used the upper floor as a Senior Common Room.[31] The tower was completed in
1956,[27] and the college as a whole (without the institute on the site opposite, which is now used as a car park)[32] was finished in
1960.[33] Work was still under way when the college was incorporated by royal charter in 1958, thereby becoming a self-governing
entity.[34] The charter was presented to the college by the Duke of Edinburgh on 6 June 1958, at the first lunch to be served in the

Colvin commented that, apart from the flèche which was similar to the initial plan, the college as finally built contained none of the
elements that had given Harrison's first design "interest and distinction".[35] The remaining "vestiges" of the first plan, he said, were

main doors, cut to resemble the buildings of medieval Italy rather than those ofudor

The college presents a symmetrical front to New Road and the castle mound, with four small gables between a larger gable at either
end.[36] There are two quadrangles, with steps leading down from the upper quadrangle (to the east) to the lower quadrangle (to the
west). Residential accommodation for students and fellows is located in the lower quadrangle, whilst the hall, library, and
administrative offices are in the upper quadrangle.[24] The buildings are two storeys high, with dormers above.[29] There are pools in
the centre of the quadrangles (the one in the lower quadrangle is the longer of the two); the writer Simon Jenkins said that these are
"almost puddles", and saw them as relics of Harrison's Mediterranean plan.[8] The writer Peter Sager, however, thought that the pond
represents the canal basin that previously occupied the site.[17] The main entrance leads into the upper quadrangle, which has the hall
on its east side.[29] The square-mullioned windows facing the quadrangles are arranged in close-set groups of three; at the east end of
the upper quadrangle, the common room has a larger bay window.[36][29] An abstract sculpture by Hubert Dalwood, from 1962, has

been positioned on the lawn inside the college.[36] Dalwood also designed the

was not implemented, "leaving the sculpture with no obvious purpose".

forty people. It has five abstract stained glass windows that were designed by John
Piper and executed by Patrick Reyntiens, and a metal reredos with a bronze crucifix.[24][29][36][38] The roofs are finished with
Collyweston stone slates from Northamptonshire. Many other Oxford colleges are roofed with Stonesfield stone slate from a quarry
10 miles (16 km) northwest of Oxford, but these were no longer available when Nuffield was built.[39] The main building stone used
is Clipsham stone.[31] The tower, which has nine floors, is about 90 feet (27 m) tall, with the flèche taking the total height to about
150 feet (46 m).[31][36] It was the first tower built in Oxford for 200 years.[24] Work was carried out in the library in 1999 to extend
the total shelf-length to just under 6 kilometres (3.7 mi).[40] The library contains paintings of "Spring" and "Winter" by Derrick
Greaves and "Summer" and "Autumn" byEdward Middleditch.[41]

The architectural writer Geoffrey Tyack has written that Nuffield College was Oxford's "most
important architectural project of the immediate post-war years".[43] Opinions about the
architecture merits of the college have varied, although most have been unfavourable. The
authors of a 1961 booklet on the architecture of modern Oxford said that it was "Oxford's
biggest monument to barren reaction".[4] The Cotswold style was "taken absurdly out of
context and mercilessly stretched", and did not "harmonise with the clumsy tower", whilst the
spire "[perched] uneasily ... despite its elaborate base".[4] An unnamed journalist wrote in The
Times in 1959 that the main buildings of the quadrangles were "somewhat oddly wedded to
small basins which irresistibly suggest a Lilliputian Versailles".[44] The same writer said that
the tower rose "Manhattan-wise for 10 storeys through the twentieth century, only to have a
diminutive spire, escaped from the fifteenth, push through its top to steal the last laugh".[44]
Peter Sager, too, thought that the "high-rise library" could "easily stand on the Hudson".[17]
The tower, variously
Sir Howard Colvin said that the "utilitarian function" of the tower "accorded ill with its
described as "exciting",[38]
original ornamental purpose", and that the architects had "failed to find a satisfactory solution" "mighty",[36] "ungainly",[5][8]
to the "repetitive uniformity of fenestration".[27] Of the flèche, Colvin said that it "makes its "clumsy"[4] and
contribution to the Oxford skyline without any overt reference to historical precedent".[27] "grotesque"[42]
Geoffrey Tyack also disliked the tower, describing it as "an ungainly structure" that was "lit by
a monotonous array of windows punched out of the wall surface"; however, he thought the
hall was "an effective reinterpretation of the traditional collegiate pattern".[5]

The architectural historian Sir Nikolaus Pevsner compared the college unfavourably to the designs of the Danish architect Arne
Jacobsen for St Catherine's College, Oxford, construction of which began in 1960 (the year that Nuffield College was completed): St
Catherine's, in his view, was "the most perfect piece of architecture of 20th-century Oxford" and made Nuffield "look even more
absurd".[33] Nevertheless, he "proposed forgiveness" for the "mighty tower", which "positively helps the famous skyline of Oxford",
adding that it has "enough identity to be sure that one day it will find affection".[36] He said that the tower had something of the
architect Edwin Lutyens' "felicitous manipulation of period details into a non-period whole and will, I prophesy, one day be loved",
although he was less sure that this fate awaited the rest of the buildings.[7] Simon Jenkins said of Pevsner's prophecy about the tower,
"I doubt it"; he described it as "at best ungainly", with a "weak spire", and said that "vegetation was its best hope, as for the rest of
Nuffield".[8] The college, in his view "required a sense of humour".

Writing in 1952, after the first section of the buildings was complete, J. M. Richards, the
editor of the Architectural Review, said that Nuffield was "a large-scale example of period-
style architecture which has no justification whatever on grounds of consideration for the
neighbours and represents missed opportunity of a really tragic kind".[3] As the site was away
from the "ancient colleges" of the city centre and in an area of "undistinguished nineteenth
century commercial building", there had been a "rare opportunity" of building something
"belonging ... to the twentieth century, and of showing that Oxford does not live only in the
past".[3] He said that the "compromise between contemporary needs and what is imagined to
be the English collegiate tradition is quite unworthy of the educational enterprise the new
foundation represents".[3] He was, however, "thankful" that the building used smooth-faced
stone "in the proper Oxford style" rather than rubble facing, which he said had been used
elsewhere in Oxford "with extraordinarily unpleasing results".

Looking through the west The architectural correspondent of The Times wrote that the architecture of the college was
gate into the lower
incongruous – it was "remarkable" that a college with connections to modern industry should
be looking backwards in this way. "That a college devoted to modern scientific studies should
be dressed up [in the style of an antique Cotswold manor house] has already been the subject
of puzzled comment by many foreign visitors to Oxford."[45] Writing in The Observer, Patience Gray also disliked the college's
design, referring to the "Cotswold dementia" of the architecture, and the college's "pokey windows and grotesque sugarloaf
tower."[42] The chapel was described by the travel writer Jan Morris as "one of the sweetest little sanctuaries in Oxford";[46] "very
simple, almost stern" with a contrast between the black and white pews and the "rich colour" of the stained glass.[46] However, she
said that whilst Oxford colleges change in style over time as buildings are added or altered, "Nuffield was a hodge-podge from the
start, with a faintly Levantine tower upon a Cotswold Gothic base".

The writer Miles Jebb considered the contrast between the hall's black and white
floor and red-panelled roof to be "most effective".[37] He thought that the enclosed
layout of the college was "a principal attraction", but wrote that the tower's
"palpably utilitarian function detracts from its aesthetic attraction", even though it
made the "emphatic addition" to the skyline of Oxford that Nuffield wanted.[37] A.
R. Woolley, author of an Oxford University Press guide to the city and university,
was more positive. He described the tower as "an exciting breakaway from the
conventional", with its spire as a "secular contribution to the sky-line".[38] He said
that the buildings "make a picturesque group of gabled Cotswold roofs", adding that
Rooms in the lower quadrangle
"[t]heir design is simple and depends for its effects upon its just proportions. It is at
once traditional and original."[38]

In 1993, the college became a Grade II listed building, a designation given to buildings of national importance and special
interest.[29][47] The kerbstones around the pool in the west quadrangle have been given separate Grade II listing, as an "integral part
of the Nuffield College scheme".[48]
