Organized in a series of walking tours and beautifully photographed with 100 color photographs, this guide reveals the stories behind over 80 historic and contemporary campus buildings, gardens, and works of sculpture, as well as a sampling of architecturally significant landmarks in the surrounding town. Three-dimensional watercolor maps locate the featured buildings. Founded in 1746, Princeton University epitomizes ideals about campus planning and building design. Major works by architects McKim Mead & White, William A. Potter, R. H. Robertson, John McComb Jr., Hugh Stubbins, Machado Silvetti, I. M. Pei, Marcel Breuer, and Venturi Scott Brown, as well as sculpture of such notables as Daniel Chester French, Pablo Picasso, and David Smith, are presented.
