DARWIN COLLEGE STUDY CENTRE, CAMBRIDGE
The building provides facilities for post-graduate students to study.
The site, a long narrow rectangle, lies between the curve of Silver Street and the Cam milipool. The College itself is linear in plan. Over time existing buildings were joined together by new connecting buildings. The site is therefore the linear end of a linear plan.
