Campus Heritage in the 21st Century: Notable Precedents and Inspiring Antecedents
Dober, Richard P.
Planning for Higher Education, v39 n3 p36-40 Apr-Jun 2011
As physical evidence of institutional aspiration and achievement, ambition and accomplishment, campus heritage (broadly defined) has emerged as a major component in comprehensive campus planning and in devising a site-specific sense of place. Physical actions related to campus heritage include the renewal and/or repurposing of landmark architecture, the restoration of legacy outdoor spaces and gardens, and the protection and installation of microscale elements such as benches, sculptures, and trees honoring local events and personalities. A responsible regard for heritage not only influences recognition and respect for the contributions to campus design of earlier generations but also affects new development. The recent historic preservation efforts sponsored by the Council of Independent Colleges and the initiatives of the Society for College and University Planning/Getty Foundation are welcomed actions that help solidify and further a good cause.
