Centre for Mathematical Sciences (Cambridge)

The Centre for Mathematical Sciences (or CMS) at the University of Cambridge houses the university's Faculty of Mathematics, the Isaac Newton Institute, and the Betty and Gordon Moore Library. It is situated on Wilberforce Road, formerly a St. John's College playing field, and as such is part of the university's expansion to West Cambridge.

The Isaac Newton Institute, where Andrew Wiles announced his proof of Fermat's Last Theorem on 23 June 1993, was opened in 1992.The rest of the site was designed by Edward Cullinan architects and Buro Happold and construction under project manager Davis Langdon was completed in 2003. It consists of 340 offices in 7 'pavilions', grouped around a 'central core' with lecture rooms, common space, and a grass-covered roof, as well as a gatehouse. The design won awards including the British Construction Industry Major Project Award 2003, the David Urwin Design Award 2003, the Royal Fine Art Commission Trust Specialist Award 2003 and the RIBA Award 2003.
