U of A historic "knitted" brick buildings

These buildings stand out for their decorative brick. On the Aboriginal Student Council building, left, even the chimney is adorned with an elaborate pattern.

Like academic buildings on many campuses, they carry historic references to their Oxbridge ancestors.

A similarly elaborate brick design on Keble College Oxford has earned it the epithet "the fair isle jersey"among the locals.
