American University Architecture

Key US Academic Developments – Educational Projects

post updated March 6, 2022

US University Architecture

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of American university architecture designs. We aim to include projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed US university buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across the United States of America. The focus is on contemporary American higher educational buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.

We have 4 pages of American University Architecture selections with links to many individual project pages.
