BERMAN GUEDES STRETTON ARCHITECT: BRIDGING CENTURIES -- PEMBROKE COLLEGE OXFORD. Alan Berman et al. Artifice Books on Architecture, London, 2016. 160 pp. with 189 ills. 27 x 22 cm. ISBN 9781908967176 In English.
Due date: Forthcoming. Publisher's description: Oxford University has had a formative role in shaping the city's uniquely dense historic fabric. With increased demand for development and the neglect of abandoned, poor quality buildings -- previously housing tanneries, breweries and slaughterhouses-a national competition for the expansion of Oxford's centuries-old Pembroke College was initiated and won by Berman Guedes Stretton Architects. Known for its sympathetic approach to architecture, both in the firm's extensive experience with listed buildings and its deference for maximum functionality, the winning design comprises a human scale development of stepped quads, conference facilities and housing. Bridging Centuries outlines the genesis of the project in relation to Pembroke College's extensive history and the development's aspirations: to be innovative, useful and respectful of its context. The book discusses how the College has played a major part in rejuvenating this area of industrial decline while simultaneously integrating itself within the context of Lutyen's neighbouring Campion Hall and surrounding 1960s buildings.
