Isi Metzstein and Andrew MacMillan, of Gillespie, Kidd and Coia, were the architects who designed Robinson College. After Isi passed away in 2012, College members wished to recognise his important role in making the College what it is today.

The Isi Metzstein Fund for Architects commemorates his many contributions to Robinson, as its architect along with Andrew MacMillan and as an Honorary Fellow. The initial target is to raise an endowment of at least £25,000 for the fund, which would allow grants totalling at least £1,000 per year to be made to Robinson architecture students to help them meet some of the additional costs of training, such as purchasing modelling materials and undertaking training placements.
