Written by Stefan Muthesius, then a professor of architecture and urban design at the University of East Anglia, this book studies the period of new university building from the late 1950s to the early 1970s, in the USA and Canada, in Europe and the "English Seven" - Sussex, York, Essex, East Anglia, Lancaster, Kent and Warwick. It deals with the efforts as much as the results of attempts to create utopian dreams, charting the interaction of the diverse agendas of designers, educationalists, sociologists and poliiticians, each tied into their country's own traditions.
