Charles Holdenâ€™s Master Plan: Building the Bloomsbury Campus
â€˜Charles Holdenâ€™s Master Planâ€™ celebrates the architectâ€™s vision of what a modern university could be through displays of detailed architectural models, archival documents, photo albums, and other mixed media.
Architect Charles Holden was appointed by Sir William Beveridge, Vice-Chancellor of the àËÅöÊÓÆµ (1926-1928), to design àËÅöÊÓÆµâ€™s new infrastructure for higher education for the cityâ€™s flagship university.
Holden would see his ambitious plans for the àËÅöÊÓÆµ as the culmination of his lifeâ€™s work and the massive Portland stone clad tower of Senate House, finished in 1937, as his magnum opus.
The exhibition takes place in Senate House, First Floor, Chancellorâ€™s Hall Lobby.
