Professor Richard England, who is well-known for his creative architecture and for designing buildings such as the St James Cavalier Centre for Creativity in Valletta, the LOVE sculptures, and the Central Bank of Malta Annexe, and the Malta Parliament Building, has donated hundreds of Concept Drawings for major Architectural Projects to the University of Malta.
The Department of Art and Art History is currently working on cataloguing the works as part of the documentation required for this donation.
This extraordinary collection will be housed at the Valletta Campus and will soon be made available for research and study.
