Durham plans new Ove Arup bust

Durham University has made a planning application to replace a bust of Anglo-Danish engineer Ove Arup that has been missing for five years.

The university has submitted an application to Durham County Council for a “replacement Ove Arup bust” on the South extension of Dunelm House, on the university’s Durham campus.

Dunelm House’s construction was overseen by Arup, and is located next to the Grade 1 listed Kingsgate Bridge, designed by Arup. The original bust was mounted on the wall of Dunelm House, but went missing in 2006.
