Founded in 1584 on the site of a medieval Dominican priory, Emmanuel has a remarkable history as one of the constituent colleges of the University of Cambridge, but is also a significant ensemble of buildings and gardens. The late seventeenth-century Chapel, designed by Sir Christopher Wren, stands at Emmanuel's core and has become one of the iconic images of Cambridge. Over the centuries, the original structures and the open spaces have been altered and added to, shaped by Fellows and Masters, donors and dons. In turn, these buildings and gardens have helped shape the identity, spirit and reputation of the College and of generations of students.
Illustrated with stunning new photography by leading architectural photographer Will Pryce, this book is a journey that takes the reader to the heart of the historic, social and aesthetic character of Emmanuel College, Cambridge.
