Duke University: An Architectural Tour
Duke University was officially founded in 1924. Until 1950 it was designed primarily by Julian Abele, one of the few professional African-American architects working in the United States at that time. The campus architecture is best known for its medieval-style Gothic buildings, notably Duke Chapel.
