The £10 million Ogden Centre for Fundamental Physics will be located beside the university's existing physics department on South Road and will accommodate two growing organisations - the Institute for Computational Cosmology and the Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology.
Studio Daniel Libeskind won a competition to design the building back in July, but has only just revealed images following the news that over £5 million of charitable donations have been made towards the project.
"This new building will provide a tremendously stimulating environment and foster even closer synergies between the two Institutes' research areas," commented Martin Ward, head of Durham's physics department.
Public consultation on the design will take place later this month, and the building is due to complete in 2015, subject to planning approval.
