The first edition of the Campus Guide showcased Duke s rich architectural heritage, from its founding in 1924 to Horace Trumbauer's masterful design of the original East and West campus buildings. Beginning in 2000, Duke began an unprecedented expansion, adding six million square feet of space. This revised and updated edition of Duke University captures the remarkable transformation of its campus into a versatile twenty-first-century architectural community. Featuring new photographs and a new tour by architect Ken Friedlein and consulting architect to Duke University John Pearce, this second edition is an indispensible guide to North Carolina's extraordinary university in the forest.
