Archive Services, University of Dundee
The Tower Building is one of the most recognisable buildings on the University of Dundee’s city campus. Designed in 1958 by architects Robert Matthew Johnson-Marshall, it reflects their interests in developing a vernacular-inspired Scottish modernist style. Although modern in form (predating Dundee’s later enthusiasm for multi-storey tower blocks) it was built from traditional stone and wood. It opened in 1961 with the extension following in 1968.
Archive Services offers a unique opportunity to have a behind- the-scenes tour of two archive stores. You’ll discover what archives are, how they are preserved and how they can be used for many purposes including research, family/local history and creative inspiration. Get hands-on with original archives relating to jute, whaling, asylums, the environment, comics and much more.
Guided tour at 3pm.
