Abstract :
The results of architectural recording within the North Range of the University's Old Schools are described. Argued to have stood independently as a hall in the later 14th c., the progressive development of the School's quadrangle, and extensive alterations to it - culminating in Wright's neo-classical facade of 1754-1758 - reflects upon the historical development of academic architecture. The prestigious display of the complex in the mid 18th c., facilitated through the mass leveling of domestic properties, equally tells of the institutional 'realization' of the University. ;
