Quick Reference

English architects, their partnership formed in 1947. In the 1950s and 1960s, Sheppard and Robson effectively applied the vocabulary of mainstream Modernism, inspired by Le Corbusier's Maisons Jaoul, to a series of schools, technical colleges, and universities. Their outstanding works are the Halls of Residence, Imperial College, London (1957–65), adopting the staircase model of Oxford and Cambridge colleges, and Churchill College, Cambridge (1960–68), borrowing the traditional quadrangle from the same source.
