Through the Conservation Keyhole: Meet Sir George Gilbert Scott…


Have you ever wondered about

the history of University’s Main Building?

After conservation treatment in the Preservation Unit in Archive Service the university’s building plans were digitalised. The copy of these plans was framed and is now hanging in the Senate Corridor, so you can explore all the interesting details. The plans are beautiful drawn by hand and finished with watercolours. There are also some handwritten notes by the architect, Sir George Gilbert Scott.

This piece is not only a great way to discover the University’s Main Building, but also to encounter the architect and his work.

Many thanks to our colleagues at the Hunterian Art Gallery for all the help.
