Ax:son Johnson Centre for the Study of Classical Architecture

The Ax:son Johnson Centre for the Study of Classical Architecture at the University of Cambridge was established in 2021 as a collaboration between the two constituent Departments of the University’s Faculty of Architecture and History of Art, working with the Faculty of Classics.  It has been generously funded for the three-year period 2021-24 by the Axel and Margaret Ax:son Johnson Foundation for Public Benefit of Sweden.  The Centre exists to offer a forum for research and the exchange of ideas concerning all aspects of the classical architectural tradition, across time and place, and to provide a Summer School for students interested in learning about classical architectural practice.  The Centre is housed, and holds many of its activities, at the Neo-classical Downing College, Cambridge.
