Tower Foyer & Lamb Galleries, 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. The Tower Building is home to the University’s main museum exhibition galleries, hosting a dynamic programme of free exhibitions of art and science.
For this special Doors Open Day event, museum staff will give a guided tour of our current exhibitions as well as some of the building’s permanent art displays.
Guided tour at 2pm.
