Masterplan Development

During my latest History lecture we covered elements of Brutalism from the Smithsons to Lasdun.

Of all the notable projects discussed 2 in particular seem especially pertinent to my own studios master planning brief.

The first is Lasdun’s Masterplan for the University of East Anglia, as shown in the above image.

The second is the Hunstanton School by the Smithsons, shown below. An approach that used a similar steel frame method with infix panels could be developed for our own proposals whereby the steel is erected by a contractor and the infix panels are made by students.

From this I will look at the comparative size and scales of other UK higher education institutions and the Kingston Hill Site.
