University of Leeds Listed Building Management Guidelines

Leeds

Avanti Architects has been engaged by University of Leeds to prepare Listed Building Management Guidelines for nine listed post war university building designed by Chamberlin Powell & Bon and built to an overall masterplan developed in the 1960’s. Although the masterplan was not realised in its entirety, the buildings which were constructed function as a set piece within the university precinct.
The Chamberlin Powell & Bon development is a significant phase in the context of the development of the University of Leeds itself but also reflects a point in history where national views on higher education allowed this massive development to be conceived. It is a key example of post-war modernism in Britain and is a principal work of CPB. The guidelines are intended to provide a tool for the long term management of the heritage asset.
