Architectural Character


The architecture displayed in Duke's architecture represent far more than just Collegiate Gothic and Georgian styles, with a variety of modern and contemporary structures that build upon the architectural heritage of the University with varying degrees of success. The common denominator for most of the campus buildings is an attempt to address this heritage in some manner through materials, scale, proportion and/or detailing, as deemed appropriate by the architect and the University administration at a particular time.
