The late 19th Century saw a reinvention of American architecture initiated by Henry Hobson Richardson and continued by his followers — foremost among them McKim, Mead, and White. One of the most striking components of this effort was the design of the college campus. It showed in microcosm this artful approach toward the city. The campus was seen first as an overall plan, then as individual structures, and finally as a system of infrastructure. New York City boasts two premier examples of this design approach by McKim, Mead, and White- Columbia University and the Bronx Community College.

This course will examine the larger context of these designs and examine them as case studies in one evening lecture session followed by guided tours of the campuses of Columbia University and Bronx Community College.
