The Botany School building at the University of Cambridge was officially opened in 1904. Arguing that academic department buildings in their internal dispositions of functions, agglomeration of scales, and notions of public display can act as primary sources, I demonstrate how a close reading of this building’s architectural mesoscale can present a nuanced view of disciplinary developments and practices in British botany around 1900.
