Cambridge in Concrete: Images from the RIBA British Architectural Library Photographs Collection


Open Monday - Friday 10am - 4.30pm*

*The programme of the exhibition can be subject to change. Before visiting please call 01223 332950.

A small exhibition of architectural photographs shot in the 1950s and 1960s aims to stimulate the debate on a controversial period of architecture and to open up to the wider public the 'other Cambridge', often misjudged.

The buildings selected were shot by established photographers who visited Cambridge in those years: Eric de Maré, John Donat, Richard Einzing, Sam Lambert, John Maltby and Henk Snoek. The event will celebrate the centenary of the Department of Architecture, University of Cambridge (1912 - 2012).

The exhibition is dedicated to Robert Elwall.
