Architecture On Campus

Philip Goad, George Tibbits
Offers a unique insight into the rich array of buildings, public artworks and landscapes of the University of Melbourne.
Architecture on Campus offers a unique insight into the rich array of buildings, public artworks and landscapes of the University of Melbourne. When the university was established in 1853, its founders secured a large and expansive site. It was a shrewd move. The first building, the Quadrangle, was Tudor Gothic and handsome in aspect. It sat like a gentleman's villa in a vast park.
Now, 150 years later, the campus is like a city, home to more than 35 000 students and spreading beyond its original boundaries. It is an urban precinct with its own special identity, and its buildings offer an unparalleled chronicle of educational architecture in Australia.
Architecture on Campus features over one hundred buildings, complemented by Patrick Bingham Hall's stunning photographs. It is a celebration of the backdrop to the intellectual, social and sporting life of a venerable and distinguished university.
This clear and thoughtful guidebook is an invitation to exploration, and the perfect companion for walks.
