History Faculty Building, Sidgwick Site, Cambridge University

James Stirling

Like the later Florey Building at Oxford, this building was (is?) controversial. It occupies a central location in the Sidgwick site, next to Sir Norman Foster's Law Faculty Building.
This History Faculty Building houses a library and reading room for 300 readers (approximately half the floor area) as well as offices, seminar rooms, and commons areas. Two seven-story wings are at right angles to the glass-roofed library reading room. The low building around the reading room contains the books.

Entrances into the building

There are several entrances into the building. The one at the center and below left is considered the main entrance.
