Schlumberger Cambridge Research Centre

Inspirations

Chosen by Jonathan Ellis-Miller of EllisMiller Architects. Schlumberger Cambridge Research Centre was designed by Hopkins Architects and completed in 1992. "I was driving home from university on the A14 when I first saw it," says Ellis-Miller in the book 50 Architects 50 Buildings. "It was extraordinarily peculiar, like a giant spider that had just landed."
