I have been privileged to work with Robert A.M. Stern Architects on many of these projects, and am honored to have a large number of my sketches and renderings included in the volume: as illustrations for the projects themselves; among the reference illustrations in Stern’s survey of the American campus context; and as greatly enlarged details on the facing pages of many Chapter Titles.

Norman Weinstein of ArchNewsNow Amazon.com review specifically cites “the spectacular photographs and drawings in this weighty tome. “ At nearly 600 pages, the profusely illustrated and substantial volume is in keeping with Stern’s previously published iconic monographs. The extensive project descriptions, photographs, and illustrations, together with Stern’s survey of the American Campus, make the volume not only an attractive record of his firm’s college and university work, but a valuable reference for architects involved in college and university work themselves.
