Norwich UEA – Friday 13th July 2018

There are a couple of branches of Waterstones based in University campuses – this one is at the University of Anglia, situated to the west of Norwich.  The University was founded in the 1960s and notable alumni from the world of literature include Sir Kazuo Ishiguro, Ian McEwan and Tracy Chevalier. 

Although this branch is open to anyone, it felt really weird walking to the branch through the campus – I felt like an interloper!

The architecture of the site is in the Brutalist style and was designed by Sir Denys Lasdun with later additions by Sir Bernard Feilden.  This type of building is considered by many to be ugly, the construction material being concrete, but I quite like it!
