The newest titles in the Princeton Architectural Press Campus Guide series take readers on an insider's tour of the University of Washington in Seattle, Rice University in Houston, and Cranbrook in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Beautifully photographed in full color, the guides present architectural walks at three of America's finest campuses, revealing the stories behind the historic and contemporary buildings, gardens, and works of public art.

Rice University's neo-Byzantine-style campus, created by Cram, Goodhue & Ferguson, also includes modern buildings by James Stirling and Michael Wilford, Ricardo Bofill, Cambridge Seven Associates, John Outram, and Antoine Predock.
