A Tale of Three Campuses: Planning and Design in Response to the Cultural Heritages at Mills College, the University of California, Berkeley, and Stanford University
Fiene, Karen; Sabbatini, Robert
Planning for Higher Education, v39 n3 p110-138 Apr-Jun 2011
How do forward-looking institutions with rich landscape and architectural heritages integrate contemporary programming and design? This article explores the evolution of the Mills College campus and compares it with two larger western universities: the University of California, Berkeley (UCB) and Leland Stanford, Jr., University (Stanford University). How has the character of each campus been preserved or lost, and what measures are being employed today to ensure each campus's cultural heritage is valued and reflected in current planning and design? The three campuses have commonalities, yet each exhibits a unique character and predominant architectural style. (Contains 41 figures.)
