Scope and Content Natural Philosophy Building, University of Glasgow, University Avenue, Glasgow, from the south The Natural Philosophy Building, one of Glasgow University's main departmental buildings, was designed in 1907 by the Glasgow architect, James Miller, and photographed in 1909 by the distinguished architectural photographer, Harry Bedford Lemere. The building lies to the south of University Avenue, on the slope leading down from the Victorian residential ranges of Professors' Square (right). Its two pilastered blocks are linked by a gabled Jacobean centrepiece, crowned by a decorative cupola. In 1954 the architect, Sir Basil Spence, extended the building to the north to provide research facilities for Nuclear Physics. In 1959 and 1966 he built further extensions to the west and east, including a huge reinforced concrete lecture theatre. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
