On Architecture: Princeton, Chicago, Ayers-Saint-Gross
30 May 2001 (collegiateway.org) — The trustees of Princeton University recently approved the construction of a sixth residential college at that university, and an architect will be hired some time this year.
The University of Chicago recently underwent a cycle of planning, and one of the early consultants was the architect Michael Sorkin. Sorkin wasn’t hired to do the comprehensive plan, but as a Chicago alumnus he decided to develop a complete plan for the university on his own, and it apparently includes a system of residential colleges. His proposal will be published this fall by Princeton Architectural Press under the title Other Plans.
The architectural firm of Ayers/Saint/Gross has included the Collegiate Way website on a page of university planning resources. Over the past year the Collegiate Way website has been cited by many university-related sites around the world and it now appears in all the major search engines.
