The University of East Anglia campus has witnessed a mixed bag of styles. It all started so simply with Lasdun’s ziggurats in the landscape, complemented by Foster’s hi-tech. Then came Mather’s modernism followed by a flurry of ropey po-mo. More recently there’s been the lovely Adapt low carbon enterprise centre. Now LSI Architects’ Blackdale student halls is adding some bling, clad in Proteus HR cladding’s elZinc Rainbow Gold. It’s said to be so bright it reflects on to the student blocks next door – how’s that for enlightenment?
