|The unique settings and circumstances of American college campuses have given rise to some of the richest and most innovative examples of architecture and planning in the United States. These campuses are sites of many of the country's finest building programs, and showcase the best work of successive generations of architects. The Campus Guides are beautifully illustrated books on the design and history of American campuses. Each book profiles over 75 major buildings and gardens on the campus and its surrounding community, and also provides visitor information. The guides feature color photographs, archival images, and drawings. Hand-colored maps illustrate significant landmarks.
Duke University was founded in 1924. The main campus of medieval-style Gothic buildings was designed primarily by Julian Abele, a senior designer Horace Trumbauer's Philadelphia office and at that time one of the country's few professional African-American architects.
