Building Knowledge: An Architectural History of the University of Glasgow

  • £ 9.99
For over 560 years the University of Glasgow has acted as a remarkable patron of architecture. Each generation of academics and their architects has sought to maintain and adapt the University's buildings to the constantly changinng needs of a world-class teaching and research institution. Often the University has turned to the finest craftsmen to realise its ambitions. A recent resurvey of campus, undertaken by Historic Scotland in collaboration with the University of Glasgow, unearthed an extraordinary record of these partnerships. A selection of this material is included in this fascinating and lavishly illustrated book, much of it never before published.

The book concludes with the University's next stage of development with planning underway for the expansion of the main campus into the Western Infrimary site. Building Knowlege is not only for those with a connection to the University, the book also tells Scotland's rich story of learning and culture through its amazing buildings. Buildings which continue to inspire today.
