Connections, entry sequences, materials, and massing are just a few of the issues that come into play when architects are working within campus settings — especially those with a strong master plan and a cohesive or historic fabric. This issue explores the value of architectural diversity and creative responses to context. The discussion begins with a series on the three presidential libraries in Texas. Located on university campuses, the libraries all respond to their academic settings in unique ways. Connection is a driving element of the other projects presented — a business school, museum, student center and dining hall, and race track. All strive to tie their respective campuses closer together with individual design statements. Campus Architecture 54 74 It’s George, Not Georgian George W.
