Controversial modern Cambridge building that had probelms with overheating, leaks, falling tiles, etc. This red brick building with acres of glass features in most Histories of 20th Century architecture.

Location: Sidgwick Campus, west of the city centre, over on The Backs.

James Stirling also entered two architecture competitions in Cambridge – with no joy, at Churchill College (1958) and Selwyn College (1959).
