|Discussion||Sainsbury Centre Commentary
"The Sainsbury Art Centre at the University of East Anglia, Norwich is described as a well-serviced metal-clad barn. Analogies have been drawn with the simplicity of expression and utility of purpose of Inigo Jones's St. Pauls Church, Covent Garden, London. It is a highly tuned and well-engineered shed for art of considerable sophistication serving as a research institute with public access gallery. It was sponsored by private funds. The white walls and roofs take the form of continuous trusses and all services are housed within the 'outer wall zone'."
