When I first started in Oxford our lab was based on the top floor of the Hans Krebs tower. Since 2008 we have been in the imaginatively named “New Biochemistry Building” which is actually only half a building, but that is another story. To make room for the other half, the Hans Krebs Tower is finally being demolished. In celebration and/or memory I’ve posted a stop motion video I took from my desk out of the 7th floor back in January 2008. You can see several of the characteristic spires of Oxford as well as the plumes from Didcot power station. This too has recently succumbed – 3 of the 6 cooling towers of the old Didcot A power station were demolished three weeks ago.
