The Hexagon: Something Fierce - Vision and Reality
"Something Fierce" emerged in Essex from 1964 – a new University determined to look to the future and break with tradition. The exhibition gives you the chance to discover the story of the foundation of the University of Essex and 50 years of student life. The exhibition celebrates the bold, 'brutalist' sixties architecture
of the Colchester Campus; the unique academic vision and the vibrant community of scholars and students they created. The Hexagon is based at the heart of our Colchester Campus. The exhibition at different times during the Spring and Summer terms see the exhibition website for details.
