and Neighboring Institutions
Robert Spencer Barnett
(First Edition by Raymond P. Rhinehart)
Princeton University & Neighboring Institutions: The Campus Guide offers an elegantly revised and expanded edition to the original Princeton: The Campus Guide (1999), presenting $2 billion of capital investment in fifty projects during the 2000–2015 period. With a Foreword by President-Emeritus Shirley M. Tilghman (2001–13) and a sweeping Introduction by university architect Ronald McCoy, the new Princeton Campus Guide showcases the university’s significant advances in the sciences and engineering, as well as an innovative campus landscape plan that emphasizes connections between and among buildings and neighborhoods while enhancing pedestrian safety and pleasure. The second edition of Princeton University: The Campus Guide sets the stage for the Princeton campus in the twenty-first century.
Princeton University: The Campus Guide showcases contemporary buildings by Allan Greenberg; Schwartz/Silver; Pei Cobb Freed; Tod Williams Billie Tsien; Hopkins Associates; Gehry Partners; and Rafael Vinoly complement major connective landscapes by Beyer Blinder Belle; Michael Van Valkenburgh; Robert Zion, and others.
The second edition introduces three new Walks to reveal treasures of this campus, including the Princeton University Museum of Art, with a Director’s Tour of the collection; Campus Art showcasing forty-five pieces of sculpture and public art by Alexander Calder, Henry Moore, Richard Serra, and others; and the Natural Sciences Neighborhood, a major initiative over the past fifteen years.
New and expanded text and photographs by Robert Spencer Barnett, AIA, offer insights to the educational impetus and academic leadership that advanced Princeton’s exciting changes during the past fifteen years. Barnett practiced architecture with Gruen Associates, Los Angeles, and the Hillier Group, Princeton, NJ, and served in several capacities in the office of Princeton University Architect.
Exquisitely illustrated three-dimensional watercolor maps by Tom Gastel portray the masterful Princeton University campus along with the neighboring institutions of the Princeton Theological Seminary and the Institute for Advanced Study.
