Share your University/college fašade and architectures

Mine is Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. The college dates back to 1784. Although it is quite small in comparison with other college, i personally love the architecture. Here's some pictures: -

The University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana is one of the most beautiful campuses in the United States. It also contains some of the most beautiful buildings in the country.

Yep, that's the nationally famous "Touchdown Jesus", as he is/was visible from one of the end zones (where you score touchdowns) and is holding up his arms like a referee indicating that someone scored.

Yes, there's a total of 4 buildings that are linked with 3 skybridges.

You can see the skybridge connecting Hunter West with the other building


This is a view from the lower skybridge on the third floor that connects Hunter West and the library building, looking south

Emory University (founded 1836) in Atlanta, Georgia is clearly more influenced by the styles of the American South. The following photos were taken by various members of the Flickr community:

The views of Downtown and Buckhead are just as good.

Notre Dame has a TON of green space. There are multiple quads throughout the campus.

This is the quad between the Hesburgh Library and Notre Dame Stadium

The idea of building a university campus around greenspace is credited to Thomas Jefferson and his design for the University of Virginia in 1800:


Quote:
Jefferson's original architectural design revolves around The Lawn, a grand, terraced green-space surrounded by residential and academic buildings. He called it the "Academical Village", and that name remains in use today to describe both the specific area of the Lawn and the larger University surrounding it. The principal building of the design, The Rotunda (RotundaCam), stands at the north end of the Lawn, and is the most recognizable symbol of the University. The Lawn and the Rotunda were the model for many similar designs of "centralized green areas" at universities across the country: most notably those at Duke University in 1892, Johns Hopkins University in 1902, Rice University in 1910, Peabody College of Vanderbilt University in 1915, the Green at the University of Delaware in 1916, and Killian Court at MIT in 1916. (Wikipedia)

University of Technology Sydney

People say this is the ugliest building in Sydney, but I just don't see it. One of the finest examples of Brutalist architecture in the world!
