THE ARCHITECTURE OF THE UNIVERSITY OF OREGON

A HISTORY, BIBLIOGRAPHY, & RESEARCH GUIDE

This resource provides documentation about the built environment of the University of Oregon and identifies basic resources for researching the architectural heritage of Oregon's flagship university. The guide was created in 2005 and has been continuously updated. The digital collection Building Oregon: Architecture of Oregon & the Pacific Northwest complements this guide with hundreds of images and documentation of campus buildings spanning several decades of UO's history.  An in-depth guide to the historic Knight Library, described as a Depression Era masterpiece, is also available online.
