University of Texas at Austin: The Campus Guide offers a thoughtful and revealing narrative of the school’s history. Authors Lawrence W. Speck and Richard L. Cleary and photographer Casey Dunn trace the campus’s physical and educational development, from the university’s founding in 1883 to the vibrant contemporary campus that includes the Women’s Campus, the Communications buildings, state-of-the art science and research facilities, and such campus-wide magnets as the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library and massive athletic venues.
Featuring over one hundred buildings in six self-guided Walks, this Campus Guide narrates the shared history of campus policy and architectural development at one of Texas’s premier schools, home to the brightest gems of Texan architecture designed by prominent Texan architect Herbert M. Greene of Greene, La Roche and Dahl, and internationally known designs from Paul Cret, Gordon Bunshaft and Cesar Pelli.
