This beautifully illustrated book describes the building in two parts. The first tells the story of how Lasdun approached the design and building of the RCP. In accepting the commission, he faced two potentially conflicting demands: to create a radical piece of modern architecture that would also serve as a setting for the centuries-old rituals of college life.
