Description
It remains distinctive for its still-controversial[5] neo-gothic red-brick buildings designed by William Butterfield. The buildings are also notable for breaking from Oxbridge tradition by arranging rooms along corridors rather than around staircases, in order that the scouts could supervise the comings and goings of visitors. (Girton College, Cambridge, similarly breaks this tradition.) Submitted by Jacqueline Gargus for ARCH 601.

19th Century (1800 - 1899 CE)
