Description

Looks back on the architecture of the last 100 years, decade by decade. From the ‘tobacco gothic’ of the Wills family’s splendid benefactions to the university, to the RAC’s space-age ‘Supercentre’, from Connell & Ward’s ‘shockingly modern’ Concrete House to the university’s newest Synthetic Chemistry building, each is described by Tony Aldous and superbly photographed in colour by John Trelawny-Ross. A final chapter takes the account into the twenty-first century with the Millennium buildings, Pero’s Bridge at Harbourside and the re-landscaping of the Centre and Queen Square. 210mm x 240mm 156 pp colour illustrations throughout location maps ISBN 1 904537 06 5 Softback
