University Builders.
Pearce, Martin
This publication explores a diverse collection of new university buildings. Ranging from the design of vast new campuses, such as that by Wilford and Stirling at Temasek, Singapore, through to the relatively modest yet strategically important, such as the intervention by Allies and Morrison at Southampton, this book examines the new higher educational buildings that are at the forefront of architecture today. The collection of case studies provides an overview of a broad section of building for an ever-expanding higher education market. Organized around campus plans, specialist teaching and research buildings, and constructions that act as a focus to academic life, the examples are drawn from around the world. In several cases, different university buildings from the same architect are included to illustrate either the consistency of diversity of the approach the practice brings to specific design problems. Glossy photos and project information are included. (Contains 17 bibliographic references.) (SM)
