Oxford’s Florey Building and Cambridge’s history library bumped up to grade II*
Historic England has reassessed the protected status of two buildings by James Stirling and raised both to grade II*.
Campaign group the Twentieth Century Society said it hoped the boosted grades for Stirling’s Florey Building, at Queens College, Oxford, and the Faculty of History Library at Cambridge University would better safeguard both structures.
Queen’s College’s Florey Building is a halls of residence that was built between 1966 and 1971 and had been earmarked for extension to increase the number of students it can accommodate. Avanti Architects was appointed to the £19m project in 2014, but its proposals drew criticism.
