Description - Designs For Learning by Robert A.M. Stern

Through twenty-five completed projects for major colleges and universities across the country, the firm of Robert A.M. Stern Architects presents the principles and practices behind academic buildings, libraries, and athletic facilities that sensitively integrate into the fabric of the campus.

In its forty years, Robert A.M. Stern Architects has honed a contemporary practice that is in close dialogue with the past, making it one of the most admired architectural firms today. Even in its growing global reach and expanding practice areas, the firm maintains a close attention to form, context, local culture, and received tradition, as well as to the demands and needs of the building users.

These principles have served the firm particularly well on campuses, where architectural styles and building traditions are often well established. Robert A.M. Stern Architects has created classroom buildings, student centers, athletic facilities, and libraries that respect and expand those traditions. In each case, this traditionalist firm demononstrates a deep understanding of the American college campus, with its roots in Thomas Jefferson's design for the University of Virginia. In their buildings, "the present, interacting with memories of the past, can create something that can be interesting in the future."
