Synopsis

In the story of English architecture, and the history of Cambridge University in particular, Downing College occupies a very special place. Founded in 1800 through the will of the third Sir George Downing, Baronet, it was the first new college to be built in Cambridge for more than 200 years; the first major scheme in the neo-Classical Greek Revival style; and the first instance of the spacious campus plan in collegiate architecture, acting as the precursor to Thomas Jefferson's University of Virginia and the American campus universities that were to follow. For the last 215 years the College has been fully committed to the defining style of its original buildings for all subsequent additions to its spacious site in the centre of Cambridge, and the story of its architecture is traced from the earliest plans and ideas through to the college of today.

Tim Rawle read architecture at Cambridge University (Downing College), before which he was an art student in London at St Martin's School of Art and the Central School of Art & Design. After graduating, he worked as an assistant architect in London and Cambridge, going on to postgraduate study at the Architectural Association where he was Caldicott Scholar. He eventually left architectural practice and has worked in publishing ever since, allowing him to combine his interests in architecture, photography and graphic design.
