Course overview

Some of the most remarkable English city architecture outside London in to be found in centres where university development has helped shape the character of building. We will look at representative examples - York, Oxford, Exeter, Cambridge, Durham and Norwich.

Course description

We will examine six cities where university building has been a major part of their architectural development. We will consider their early history, then Georgian and neo-Gothic building, ending with a look at some remarkable modern architecture. Choosing York, Oxford, Exeter, Cambridge, Durham and Norwich gives us the opportunity to investigate both centres of ancient learning, along with some of the development of new universities. This day school will give an opportunity to recognise the broad styles of architecture found in English cities
