Casson Conder – Key Projects
Key Buildings by this British architecture practice, alphabetical:
Arts Faculties Campus, University of Cambridge – Sidgwick Site, Cambridge, South East England, UK
Dates built: 1959-61
Floating O-plan building above podium, homage to Le Corbusier. The latter is paved with a traditional grass court within, thus Modernism fuses with traditional Cambridge college design. The scale of the blocks and the columns is massive, detailing clean and materials still working many years on.
Elephant and Rhinoceros Pavilion, London Zoo, England, UK
Date built: 1964
Grade II* listed. The building occupies a central position within the Zoo and was the first major building to implement the 1956 redevelopment plan.
Erskine Chambers, Lincoln’s Inn, London, England, UK
A new building accommodating barristers’ chambers in the historic gardens of Lincoln’s Inn in central London.
University College London Quadrangle, London, UK
Date built: 1986
A scheme for the completion of the Gower Street frontage of UCL. Since the 1920s the main entrance here had been flanked by unfinished wings. The new work follows the lines and profiles established by William Wilkin’s original building.
