RIBA83215
Wightwick, George (1802-1872)
NOTES: The additions to John Foulston's Radial Building by Wightwick opened in 1844 and comprise the superintendent's house or administration block and the three-storey block behind known as the High Building. The Radial Building and administration block still exist, converted into residences. This design is one of a number of drawings bound into five volumes entitled 'Architectural works of George Wightwick', made between 1832 and 1850. Wightwick instructed his articled pupils to make this detailed set of retrospective drawings to illustrate every building of importance he had designed. The drawings were intended to serve both as a record of Wightwick's completed buildings and as a method of conveying to his students the design process from initial working design to finished structure.
