Leicester University Engineering Building – Leicester
Architects: James Stirling & James Gowan
Unusually for a building featured on this site, the exterior of Stirling and Gowan’s construction is primarily covered in red brick and tile. While the materials may be traditional, the structure is anything but. There are plenty of interesting features – two lecture theatres project outwards from the main body, a staircase spirals up inside a glass tube, and at the rear ribbon windows angle outwards from the top in a way similar to those of the nearby Attenborough Tower. Rising above all this, the main tower is an expanse of steel and glass. The building, which is still well used, was grade II* listed in 1993.
thank you for this great source of images about Stirling’s Engineering Building.
I am interested in publishing the picture 0728. Who is the author of the photograph and when was the photo taken?
thank you in advance for your answer
