Harreagan's dormitory is one of hundreds of dormitories that pour into one of Princeton's biggest architectural boom every day.
"I think I 've never seen more new and refurbished buildings going on," said writer John mcphey, who grew up not only here, he is the son of a college doctor and now he himself teaches writing workshops here.
"I think this is just a matter of making some hay when the sun shines on the various funds the university gets.
"The construction boom seems to have been around for ten years --
The long surge of red bricks and prefabricated concrete, costing $0. 54 billion, contributed 22 new buildings to the campus and made major renovations to many old buildings.
The money that drove this huge expansion came from a combination of five aspects of the university.
$1 has been raised so far. 14 billion --
During the 90 years donated by the university, the return was unusually high.
The people behind the advertising boom and the money to drive the boom are Harold T.
Shapiro will step down from Princeton University in June 15. Early in Mr.
During his tenure, Shapiro developed an overall plan for campus development, something that the university has not had for more than 30 years.
Advertising "We know that we will plan some capital activities in the future, and we decide, instead of temporarily building, to make decisions that are not considered carefully, we will really hire someone who can help us with our overall plan. Shapiro said.
Not everyone greeted the building boom with open arms.

The acre R & D base is three miles from the campus, and the university's proposal to build 220 apartments on 488 acres of land purchased from Princeton nursery in 1986 has disrupted the Greens and nearby residents.
The president of the Friends of the Princeton nursery school has less concerns about housing development than the next changes in infrastructure and office buildings.
"The university is driving a lot of things in the region, whether it's incredible traffic growth or what we think is a disruption to historical resources," he said. Dietrich said. David H.
Knigts, director of marketing at Princeton Forrestal Center, admitted that the project has become a "lightning bolt" of the spreading problem ".

During his eight years at the university, 31 buildings were added to the campus, including a $0. 295 billion renovation and construction project for hospitals and a $60 million chemical building.

Before that, an early20th-
The century architecture boom continued from the 1897 s to the Great Depression, giving the campus a unique gothic look.
Under the guidance of Ralph Adams Salem, much of what is now known as the historical campus has been formed. Mr.
Cram was very confident of formal unity, and he built a series of dormitories along the western edge of the university, as well as the graduate school in 1913 and the University Church in 1925.
Roldolfo Machado said that the current plan was designed by Machado & Silvetti Associates in Boston, and in terms of chronological order and the type of material used, rather than zoning and functionality, envisioned
"You can't treat the whole campus as the same campus because it's not," he said . "Machado.
"It has grown for more than 200 years, reflecting different situations.
However, there are many people here. -
From campus architects to students living in it-
The style dormitory is a mistake in the building.
He said: "Most people feel that people in their 60 s are largely sad times in architectural design . "
Wright, "Unfortunately, in his 60 s, Princeton completed a lot of construction.
"In terms of hiring the best architects and asking them to do the right projects, Princeton was once the most daring and creative on campus.
"In a sense, this cloak has passed," said Ralph Lerner, dean of the School of Architecture . ".
Undergraduate students in architecture are often the toughest architectural critics who tend to agree.
"Princeton will not hire architects who really have a strong style or design concept," said Steven Caputo, a senior architect.
"They won't hire someone who will take advantage of this opportunity to really build an important piece of work for their career.
"However, building innovation may not be the only criterion in terms of Campus Development ---
Despite the impressive price. Jon D.
Hlafter, Director of Physical Planning, said Princeton did not hire architects to design buildings with too many personal marks, but instead looked at buildings to be used in the future.
"We are willing to believe that meeting the needs of users is more important than choosing what architects to do the work," he said . "Hlafter (pronounced LAF-ter).
AdvertisementHe said that today's campus buildings must combine functions and efficiency, which is completely different from the elegant stone products of Blair Hall for half a century.
In addition, the speed at which blueprints are now becoming reality is due to the materials used.
Unlike hand-made masonry structures, Princeton's buildings are actually prefabricated, reducing overhead and requiring little skill.
The Bricklayers who built the traditional Princeton campus,
Hlafter said he came from the sister city of Princeton, the Italian town of Petronello, as early as this century.
They and their descendants have died or left since then.
"There are very few people who really have more experience with complex stone products," he said . "Hlafter.
Still, the masonry structure may soon be more than just a hypothesis.
Princeton recently promised to increase undergraduate enrollment by 500 and is designing a new dormitory group at the campus center. Mr.
The trustees strongly believe, though not everyone agrees, to make the new building look as old as possible, Wright said.
A student like junior Joe, who is a junior, will give priority to living in Gothic dormitories next year ---

"Although I want them to build more Gothic buildings, this is not a time period," he said . "Joe.
"You just don't build that kind of building right now.
Looks a little fake.
"Some people see a hodgepodge, sir.
McPhee saw something else.
"I think one of the wonders of the Princeton campus is that its buildings are very eclectic and reflect the situation at different times of construction," he said . ".
"There are various styles of architecture there, and I would like to see this building fully unfold in time.
