TEACHING WALL

DESCRIPTION + /

The monumental Teaching Wall, the main teaching area at the University of East Anglia, was an instrumental part in Denys Lasdun's masterplan for the university. It follows a contour line in the landscape and is still the dominating presence. Built 1964-69, it houses the 'schools' and is a single strip which bends back and forth to avert a monolithic effect and guide movement across the site. It contains three sizes of room - small (for office), medium (for research laboratories), large (lecture halls). The wall is linked to the residences of Norfolk and Suffolk Terrace by means of an upper walkway. Lasdun's design responded to the brief which demanded that there should be no separate departments, but 'schools of study' in which inter-disciplinary boundaries would be deliberately blurred
