A university campus is a place with special resonance. As the setting for some of history's most exciting experiments in planning and design, a campus can create a unique and defining sense of place and expression of identity and ambitions.
UK-based author of University planning and architecture: the search for perfection, Paul combines two approaches – the historical and the strategic – to examine what constitutes a successful campus and how to apply these conclusions to real-life, modern-day contexts.
At this special lecture presented by Campus Management UWA, Paul Roberts discussed the ingredients pivotal to successful campus planning, architecture and design.
