Cornell Architecture Rankings and Admissions - StartClass
By 1871 Cornell had established one of the United States' early architecture schools, and many campus buildings built in the last quarter of the Nineteenth Century were designed by the architecture school's professors and students. Hence, Cornell's first architecture professor, , received many important commissions. (1882; now Tjaden) and (1888) Halls reflect Babcock's interpretation of the Romanesque Revival style. , who studied architecture under Cornell President Andrew D. White, also employed the style in the design of Library (dedicated 1891), which has grown to iconically represent Cornell. Uris Library was expanded from its original cross shape twice—first to expand the library stacks in 1937 and to add underground reading rooms overlooking Libe Slope in 1982. Miller's Hall (1902), and the Dome (1902), by Arthur N. Gibb (who also graduated from the Cornell architecture school), reflect Neoclassical themes. Cornell shifted to outside architects, the nationally prominent firm of , to design Goldwin Smith Hall (1904) and the adjacent Sheldon Memorial Exedra and Sundial (installed 1910), also in a Neoclassical style. Goldwin Smith Hall began as a modest building with an east-west orientation, but the 1904 expansion to its south converted it into the focal point of the east side of the Quad. , a new humanities building built in the space between the back of Goldwin Smith Hall and East Avenue, has completed construction as of late 2015 and is presently undergoing interior fitout. The new building will be connected to Goldwin Smith Hall with a 7,700 square foot glass covered atrium and will create 33,250 square feet of assignable space for classrooms and offices.
