The newest title in the Princeton Architectural Press Campus Guide series takes readers on a tour of Smith College. Founded in 1871 as one of the first full-fledged colleges for women, Smith is known for its beautiful campus set in an idyllic New England landscape. A walk around its grounds is like a comprehensive tour through American architecture from the eighteenth century to the present. The campus includes such diverse buildings as Peabody & Stearn's Queen Anne-style College Hall; the neo-Georgian Quadrangle by Ames, Dodge and Putnam; Skidmore, Owings & Merrill's International Style Cutter and Ziskind houses; as well as the postmodern Bass Science Center and Young Science Library by Shepley, Bullfinch, Richardson, and Abbott. The university's most recent additions include the Brown Fine Arts Center, designed by the Polshek Partnership; the Olin Fitness Center, by Leers Weinzapfel Associates; and the Campus Center by Weiss/Manfredi.


Margaret Birney Vickery is an architectural historian (Ph.D. from Stanford University). Her publications include Buildings for Bluestockings: The Architecture and Social History of Women's Colleges in Late Victorian England (Newark: University of Delaware Press, 1999).

Nina Antonetti teaches Landscape Architecture at Smith College.

Bilyana Dimitrova is an architectural photographer and the photo editor for Metropolis magazine.
