Description

Brown University: Campus Guide

Founded in 1764 as the College of Rhode Island in the town of Warren, Brown University was the seventh in a series of Colonial higher-learning institutions that now make up the Ivy League. The university moved to its current location overlooking Providence on College Hill in 1770 and was renamed in 1804 in recognition of a $5,000 gift from prominent businessman and alumnus Nicholas Brown. Today, the Brown campus, consisting of 235 buildings on 143 acres, is a tapestry of American architectural styles from pre-Colonial to modern. In Brown University, the newest volume in our acclaimed Campus Guide series, Raymond P. Rhinehart (class of ‘62) takes readers on nine architectural walks to more than one hundred campus landmarks—from the red-bricked University Hall (1770) to the state-of-the-art Warren Alpert Medical School (2001). With students, alumni, and visitors in mind, the guide showcases the role that Brown has played in the history of campus architecture and the developing urban fabric of Providence.

• The only detailed architectural history of the campus • Includes the work of esteemed modern architects, such as Philip Johnson, alongside Colonial Revival and Beaux-Arts legends Stone, Carpenter and Willson; Perry, Shaw and Hepburn; and McKim, Mead and White
• Beautifully photographed with archival material and an illustrated three-dimensional watercolor map
