Description

‘Charles Holden’s Master Plan’ celebrates the architect’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 University of London (1926-1928), to design London’s new infrastructure for higher education for the city’s flagship university.

Holden would see his ambitious plans for the University of London as the culmination of his life’s work and the massive Portland stone clad tower of Senate House, finished in 1937, as his magnum opus.
