Princeton Modern: Highlights of Campus Architecture from the 1960s to the Present is a first-ever book-length look at modern architecture on the Princeton University campus. Created to be a walking guide, the 64-page, full-color book was designed, written, and photographed by Dale Cotton, a Princeton University Press senior production editor and freelance photographer and writer. World-famous architects such as Cesar Pelli, Frank Gehry, Rafael Viñoly, and Robert Venturi, among others, have added their signature touches to the campus. Princeton Modern contains more than 90 full-color photographs of building exteriors and interiors, along with written descriptions of architectural details, history, and usages. Each building is numbered in the book to correspond with a color-coded pullout map.
