Summary
  • "This project is an interpretive and thematic look at the Urbana-Champaign campus from 1867 through 2015 via its planning, architecture and landscaping. It includes chapters that apply nine themes across time; a chapter on campus icons, most still standing; and a chapter of buildings, arenas and other spaces made possible by private gift money.
