Basil Spence's Bricks

The final photograph from our walk, as we pass through Sussex University. The buildings were designed by Basil Spence in the 1960s in an optimistic age of university expansion. Many of the buildings are actually very pleasant and on a human scale missing from much modern architecture. This is the wall of the Gardner Arts Centre which was closed a few years ago.

University of Sussex / Attenborough Centre

What used to be called 'The Gardner Centre' was designed by Basil Spence and completed in 1969. The brick cylindrical forms enclose a theatre, exhibition space and cafe, but sadly, the centre closed in 2007 due to lack of funds. Hopes are that the building will re-open in 2014 as 'The Attenborough Centre' after a GBP7M+ refurbishment. Grade II* listed. University of Sussex campus, Falmer, Sussex.

University of Sussex / entrance

The pedestrian entrance takes the form of a processional way, passing under the segmental arches of Falmer House, 1962 (Grade I listed). The genius of Basil Spence's design was in keeping a human scale and referencing Modernism to classical styles — both trabeated and arcuated — in a sensitive and engaging manner. University of Sussex campus, Falmer, Sussex.
