h4vmWhen visiting Warwick last week, I stayed in one of the “houses for visiting mathematicians”, built in the late 1960’s for this purpose by architect William Howell and now listed. h5mI particularly liked the 60’s functional-minimalist design of the house, all bricks and curves and flat roof, the structure of the five houses around the central oak, in relative isolation from the rest of the campus, and the blackboards in the “working” bedroom… And I hope I can stay there again on my next visits.h6m
