Royal Holloway, on the outskirts of London. The campus covers 120 acres.












the grounds are spectacular and vast, the nearby Virginia Water holds Roman ruins, waterfalls and monuments studded into a flowering landscape:

this is the 800 year old Oxford University. The different colleges, many formed inot quadrangles dominate the city centre:






the famous 'dreaming spires' of the skyline

Not the most beautiful for sure, but this is the first nice picture I've seen of this particular building at my university (Memorial University of Newfoundland).

It is not in the class of Oxford or some of the Polish schools, but Indiana University has some pretty stunning buildings. It is the total package at IU that really sets it apart. All the buildings are limestone from local quarries and all built in a similar style on IU's 2000 acre campus by the Works Progress Administration during the Great Depression.













This building designed by I.M. Pei with no right angles:

quieter than traffic snarled Oxford, Cambridge.

Another UNECSO World Heritage Site, 50 miles from London. Once again the ancient university dominates the town, now a hotbed of dotcom ('Silicon Fen') and genetic sciences.

the famous punting on the River Cam, tradition of the students:

First of all. LOVING all the buildings at MIT. Weirdly amazing!!!

One of several new university colleges in Malaysia

The circle formation of the overall Masterplan is a clear and strong image signifying knowledge held in the greater circle of life. A crescent moon-kite form of the 'wau' sits balanced in the circle resulting in a harmonious whole.The circle is a universal form, transcending all Malaysian races and religion and unifying them to a whole.

Positioning the three faculties and the Great Hall and library complex around a central radial core reinforces the concept while creating a strong beginning to develop a "sense of place" that will be important in guiding the architectural development of the university.





The heart of the circle is the academic core with five radial fingers representing the 3 faculties and the Great Hall complex. The circle as a unifying form signifies education within the global context.

Crossing through the lakes, the initial focus will be the Great Hall and administrative complex, which will stand majestically at the entrance of the campus. This central core is to facilitate student interaction between faculties, the cross fertilization of ideas and instantly creating a strong identity for the campus. The Great Hall is connected by a ring of walkways, connecting students within the campus to the other facilities. To the north of the Great Hall sits the Multimedia Library and Student Centre. Flanking to the right and left of the Multimedia Complex is the Medical Faculty and the Engineering + IT Faculty.

The campus planning is first and foremost oriented towards pedestrians, with walking and cycling as the predominant forms of movement on campus. The centralised Academic and Administrative core facilitates this. In addition, all faculties are within a 10 minute (800m) walking diameter. The student residencies are within a 15 minute (1000m) walking diameter from the Academic Core. Automobile access is located on the outer ring of the Academic Core to minimize automobile intrusion, and disability access will be provided throughout the campus.
