Completed in 1967 and opened in 1968, the History Faculty building by Sir James Stirling was one of the most controversial buildings in Cambridge and one that was nearly razed to the ground in the 1980s. Fifty years since its completion, the building is now Grade 2 listed and seen by many as a masterpiece of post-war architecture by one of Britains leading architects; Sir James Stirling. This video looks at the moment leading up to the building of the History Faculty and the work of Sir James Stirling.
