Overview

With the many additions to the campus of Stanford University since the publication of our book, including the Frances Arrillaga Alumni Center by Hoover Associates / The SWA Group, the James H. Clark Center for Bio Sciences & Bio Engineering by Foster and Partners / Peter Walker and Partners, and the Carnegie Institution by Esherik Homsey Dodge and Davis, it is time for a revised edition of our guide.

The original 1891 campus, conceived by Frederick Law Olmsted and executed by architects Shepley, Rutan and Coolidge, balances architecture, landscapes, and the natural surroundings in a composition of classic formal beauty. Stanford is a model of university design, from the nineteenth- century Memorial Court and Main Quad to twentieth-century buildings and restorations that respect the historic campus while contributing to modern design. This revised edition features 16 new pages on the additions to the campus and many updated entries with new photography.
