Department of Architecture, 1981-1985


  • How to

In 1981 cuts in university expenditure threatened with closure the Department of Architecture. Despite Hodgkin's support for the Department's efforts to remain open, it closed in 1984.

The general papers and correspondence also include some material re the establishment of the Bristol Centre for the Advancement of Architecture. The Centre, of which Hodgkin was a patron, was set up independently in the city as a response to the closure of the university department.
