Building Knowledge - An Architectural History of the University of Edinburgh
In Building Knowledge - An Architectural History of the University of Edinburgh, learn the story of the University and its buildings told through a wealth of never-before-published archive material, ranging from photographs, plans and drawings, to contracts, accounts and personal letters.
Building Knowledge reveals how the structural fabric of the University of Edinburgh has often reflected the changing priorities of its scholars. Structures which emerged from the initial mishmash of the Old Town were to become iconic Scottish landmarks – from the classical magnificence of Robert Adams' purpose-built Old College, to Modernist developments, like Basil Spence's monumental central library. Combining beautiful new photography with rare archive material, the authors explore the evolution of the University through its celebrated architecture.
In this lavish new book, the story of a thriving University and the people who built and shaped it is brought to life in vivid detail.
