The Architecture of the Universities of Leicester
Published by Anchor Print Group Ltd. 2017
The Architecture of the Universities of Leicester is now in its third edition. The text updates the previous edition noting the significant changes that have taken place both for the University of Leicester and De Montfort University within the last five years. New buildings are illustrated and sites no longer part of the universities’ estates have been removed.
The first edition was reviewed in ‘Perspective’ – the Journal of the Royal Society of Ulster Architects, where it was said to be ‘a good idea to have a record all the buildings of a university in one book’.
The text was also positively reviewed and illustrated in Leicestershire Life in February 2011.
The text, with over 400 mainly colour illustrations, details the history, architecture, names, local context and current use of all major buildings on each campus. The imaginative development plans for both universities are illustrated.
The book is available from Waterstones at £29.99.
