Key Howell, Killick, Partridge, & Amis Building
Cambridge University Centre, England, UK
Date built: 1967
Concrete panels with rhythmic expression of tie-back bolts, quite brutal but intriguing.
Civic Trust Commendation in 1968.
The Cambridge University Centre Building is one of finest examples of Brutalist architecture in Cambridge.
The Modern structure was built in response to the finding of the Bridges Report, which lamented the lack of facilities for graduate students. The Centre was constructed using a £330,000 grant from the Wolfson Foundation. A plaque commemorating the official opening – on 7th November 1967 – by Sir Isaac Wolfson sits opposite reception.
