Jim Stirling and the Red Trilogy – three radical buildings

A re-evaluation of three university buildings designed by Jim Stirling during the 1960s at Leicester (with James Gowan), Cambridge, and Queen’s College, Oxford. These buildings are much praised by architects yet loathed by large proportions of the laity that use them. Alan Berman has drawn together essays exploring their radical features and their technical failings, in addition to contributions by twenty-four of today’s most famous architects – including Will Alsop, Norman Foster, Richard MacCormac, Ian Ritchie and Richard Rogers – explaining the importance of these controversial buildings in their historical context.1294063720-portada
