Faculty of Law
10 West Road
Cambridge CB3 9DZ
United Kingdom

Foster and Partners 1995

The Law Faculty building was designed by Foster and Partners, and is described in some detail on their web site. The building (including two storeys below ground level) comprises the new Squire Law library, five new auditoria, seminar rooms, common rooms and administration offices.

The plan, as Foster describes it, 'is in the form of a rectangle cut on the diagonal to respond to the primary circulation on the site, the form of the History Faculty and the fine trees on the lawn in front.'
