Dental Science Building

-A A +A
1972–1973, Smith, Hinchman and Grylls. Newton Rd.

Two exposed concrete masses are joined by a connector of light glass and metal. Entrance is gained via a steel bridge set above a slanted apron and stairs leading to the lowest level.

In the fashion of Louis I. Kahn's work of the 1950s and 1960s, the venting occurs within concrete vertical projecting roof modules (frequently treated as cantilevered bays).
