Building the Ivory Tower: The Social Functions of Late Nineteenth Century Collegiate Architecture.
Lowe, R. A.; Knight, Rex
Studies in Higher Education, v7 n2 p81-91 1982
Between 1870 and 1914 there was an expansion of the ancient universities in England and the appearance of "redbrick" universities. Ways in which architects attempted to establish a new style of collegiate architecture suggesting the antiquity and prestige of the universities, yet appropriate for the late nineteenth century, are examined.
