Arup Building History

The Arup building which is located on the new museums site in central Cambridge was designed by Phillip Dowson and completed in 1971. The building, which cost around £1.9 million, was erected to house a variety of university facilities: the zoology department and its museum, the metallurgy department and the computing centre. It is the zoology museum that provided the whale skeleton which hangs in the podium level, mirroring the structural economy and clarity of the building above.
