Gorgeous. If you are going to do traditional, do it all the way and do it right. If you don't have the budget to do traditional authentically, do something different. This should be like the eleventh commandment.

Wow! First-rate stuff.

In terms of classic architecture only, I think Yale has the best campus in the U.S.

Hubba hubba

Yales campus is definitely one of the two most beautiful campuses I've seen. I love its tightly packed urban feel and all the architectural masterpieces are amazing; but there are lots of locked gates that, while necessary to separate the riff raff and tourists from the students in situ, contribute to an ivory tower feel. Leafy Princeton situated next to that wonderful little village is the perfect college/college town.

this is just stunning to see. it looks like they bricked over concrete shells. is that so? and are those real bricks? i don't see any brick laying shots.

Tying progressivism and modernism/internationalism is an idea that belongs in the past.
i certainly agree in general, but not in every case. for example, oberlin campus is a stunning architectural showcase with styles of all eras.

thanks for keeping us appraised of this amazing project. geesh, quite a contrast, my state u dorms were beat cinderblock crap lol.

The historical detail in these structures is exquisite, but it was a Robert A.M. Stern project, so I'm not surprised. Still impressed though.

Here's one, found in Post #13 by vandelay. It would appear this is true brickwork:

It looks like some of it was hand laid brick, some was prefabricated to keep costs down, like these vaulted ceilings:





Very impressive nonetheless.

Dozens of photographs chronicling the construction of the new colleges here via Fly on the Wall Productions:

Examples:







Yale and Stern hit a grand slam.
