1881 – University College, London

Architect: Perry & Reed



To-day we illustrate a design prepared by Messrs. Perry and Reed, showing how the college buildings may be completed and enlarged. If carried out the effect would be to give a third floor over the whole of the main structure, which is at present only two stories in height. It would also allow of making the present upper story of the school square, and of giving it the direct north light which is so much required for drawing-classes. The return ends to the wings would also afford large additional accommodation for college purposes, whilst the completion of the stone screen from wing to wing would form the quadrangle, as suggested by the architect’s original sketches.
