Amherst College : An Architectural Tour, Paperback / softback Book

Amherst College : An Architectural Tour Paperback / softback

Part of the Campus Guides series

Description

Amherst College: The Campus Guide is an architectural tour of one of North America's most prestigious liberal arts colleges.

Founded in Western Massachusetts some two hundred years ago, the one thousand-acre campus is a living museum of architectural history, bearing the imprint of distinguished firms in architecture and landscape architecture: Frederick Law Olmsted; McKim, Mead & White; Benjamin Thompson; Edward Larrabee Barnes; Shepley Bulfinch; and Michael Van Valkenburgh. Organized as a series of six walks, the guide interweaves the history of the college with the story of the campus's development.

Newly commissioned photographs and a hand drawn pocket map enhance this engaging journey through Amherst's architecture, landscape, interior design, and sculpture.
