Chain Of Law

Chain Of Law

Taken at Melbourne University old law building. This building has been converted to become more of an arts building. For example, theaterical studies. Taken with a picture of the chain surrounding the central grass parch.

Built : 1854 - 1970
Built in the Victorian period in the Neo-Gothic style

Notable architectural features :

The Law School Building and Old Quadrangle is architecturally significant as a stylistic demonstration of the Universitys close links with British universities in the mid-nineteenth century. The use of the Gothic revival style was a clear demonstration of this association and was expressed through such elements as the quadrangle form, castellated parapets, cloisters, bayed windows, and pinnacled and gabled parapet ends.
