262. University of East Anglia


Dear Peter

Denys Lasdun's fascination with geology, with
the "lie of the land" (which he himself maintained
learnt from Frank Lloyd Wright), becomes
somehow overwelming in the glazed residential
quarters shaped like ziggurats at the University of
East Anglia. In any rate they stand as a fascinating
counterpoint of the High-Tech Sainsbury Centre for
Visual Arts by Norman Foster located also on this
campus.

Sincerely.
R
