Also, the same architecture firm which designed the student center at Smith is the same which designed the student center at Barnard College


Smith's student center

Barnard's student center

Both are really incredible designs.

This is a beautiful quad at UC LA that I find really beautiful.

Anybody have a nice student life experience on your college quad?

The Wake Forest University main quad is pretty spectacular. It really makes those buildings stand out well.

I love the University of Toronto campus; it is a magical oasis for 365 days a year. It is beautiful, calm and regal; surely a good influence for students and a magical escape for busy downtowners:

Here is a link with the top 50 ugliest college campuses, according to Complex.com. Do you agree with the colleges on this list? Did you go to any of these schools? Defend your position.

http://www.complex.com/style/2012/08...lege-campuses/

I have to say, SUNY's Purchase College campus seems pretty rough...

That vaulted space is spectacular, and looks like a cathedral!

Most of the ones on that ugly list are kind of ugly, but I don't think McGill can really
be called one of the ugliest campuses in the world:

"McGill University

Location: Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Key Architects: Percy Erskine Nobbs

The actual architecture of this campus is not too bad — the downtown campus is a park-like design in which buildings are built from a unified grey limestone. What puts it over the top are those horrendous green roofs".


Uhmm... those horrendous green roofs are just copper/bronze roofs that turn green with age. That is rather a classic feature around the world and am surprised that someone setting themselves up as an architectural critic would be unaware of copper roofs!

Hopefully, this thread will be growing significantly to cover so many beautiful campus
around the world.

There are so many beautiful campuses that I am surprised more people haven't contributed!

The landscaping and the buildings definitely reminds me of the Chinese universities, like Tsinghua University. I'd be interested in seeing how the dorms look there.

hi

I am pleased to show you one of the most beautiful and architecturally interesting universities that I never been.

The Central University of Venezuela (or Universidad Central de Venezuela, UCV, in Spanish) is located in Caracas and the main university campus, Ciudad Universitaria de Caracas, was designed by architect Carlos Raúl Villanueva and it is considered a masterpiece of urban planning and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2000.

Rafael, that campus does look incredible. The shot with the polished concrete stairs are really timeless.
