Charles Wilson Building, University Road, Leicester
Charles Wilson Building, University Road, Leicester
By Denys Lasdun & Partners, 1962-67, for Leicester University. Plenty of Lasdun's favoured concrete on show, together with his "familiar stressed horizontals and contrasting chimney-like service tower". Pevsner deems the "disproportionately small top section of four storeys", a "mannerism not a necessity".
