A campus for the ages

Paul Turner '62, professor emeritus of architectural history at Stanford University and author of Joseph Ramée: International Architect of the Revolutionary Era and Campus: An American Planning Tradition, wrote an op-ed for the Times Union on the College's celebration of the 200th anniversary of French architect Joseph Ramée's campus design.

Ramée's design became a model for collegiate planning. Among the many campus designs it likely influenced was Thomas Jefferson's for the University of Virginia and Frederick Law Olmsted's for Stanford University.
