Cambridge
15/07/2017 - 15/07/2017
Darwin College

HKPA in Cambridge led by Geraint Franklin

Saturday 15th July 2017 9.30am to 4.00pm


This walking tour takes in the Cambridge works of Howell Killick Partridge & Amis, some of the finest educational buildings of the 1960s. Bill Howell (1922-74), the partner in charge of HKPA’s Cambridge projects, trained at the Cambridge School of Architecture in 1946-8, returning in 1973 to replace Leslie Martin as head of school.  We start at the Senior Combination Room at Downing College (1967-9), whose pedimented form reflects William Wilkins’s Greek Revival campus. The Cambridge University Centre (1964-7) is a feisty package of common rooms studded around a full-height hall.  At Darwin College, we will be met by Dean Hawkes, an authority on the College’s architecture and a friend of Howell’s. After lunch in the Hall we will explore the residential Rayne building (both 1967-8), before concluding at Blundell Court at Sidney Sussex College (1967-9).

Meet at Cambridge Train Station at 9:30am for 10am start.

Cost: Members £30.00   Non Members £40.00   (price includes lunch at Darwin College)
